“Plaza de Armas”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Cuzco's Plaza de Armas by night is a beautiful sight to see. is surrounded by historical buildings, restaurants, stores, churches, and more just like Starbucks & McDonalds . but why would you eat money when you can eat good Peruvian food

“Always something”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Plaza de Armas is the place where people gather for so many different events that in the week we were there we watched two colorful parades with so many costumes, a concert, and car show. There are so many restaurants around the Plaza competing with one another that we could only try a small fraction of them and there is an abundance of places for shopping.

“Very Pretty Square”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

The square itself is pretty with lots of tourist type restaurants and many travel agencies. The cathedral on the square is 30 soles to tour, which seems a bit high and there is tiny cost to go in the museum as well.

This large square is surrounded by lots of colonian buildings housing,cafes,restaurants,bars and shops. Every Sunday they have a parade withmarching bands, children in costume,army, swat teams, schools all taking part in the parade. Vibrant and exciting and lasts for ages. Night scene is also vibrant with lots of choices for dinner.

“A magnet for locals and tourists alike”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

A fascinating place. People from all over the world....the Orient, Europe, South America, North America, and other places all hanging out in the square enjoying the food, commerce, and entertainment. And there is the constant parade of colorful locals selling their wares. Add to that the beautiful park, the imposing statue, and the massive cathedral, and you see why it is such a magnet for locals and tourists alike.
