I wish we'd had a few more days to spend in Cusco. It's a beautiful city with a genuine Peruvian vibe. It's clean and everyone's friendly, and contrary to most tourist towns, you can still get a great, cheap meal right on the main square.

You cannot miss this in Cusco, it is the central place where all visitors go. Busy and vibrant, but very safe with lots of police around, right next is the Cathedral, great restaurants, shops, hotels, and the gateway to San Blas and Avenue El Sol.

New Inka statue in fountain (Guide told us that the fountain was added a couple years ago). This is a real gathering place for locals. It was fun to sit and watch the children playing, locals reading or meeting friends here. Nice place to catch your breath, look at the 2 cathedrals on the square and the shops and activity all around.

Stayed in Cusco for a few nights.
And the square was meters from my hotel.
Lovely place to chill out and watch the day pass by.... just sitting and admiring the lovely architecture or the lovely landscape.
The square was well kept and properly maintained.
On the last night night of my stay there was a concert with local musicians(loved the pan-flute and the local music).
Lovely place to just chill out.

Nice place to stay, with next to the church a Starbucks on the first floor with a nice view and excellent coffee.
