Not only the square is filled with arts, crafts and wonderful restaurants, every side street offers something new. It's by far the best place to buy postcards and the souvenirs for loved ones. I found 3 of my 5 favorite coffee places in San Blas

My wife and me stayed at the comfortable Terra Viva Cusco San Blas hotel, just few steps to the Sun Blas square and church. Festivities almost every night at the square, not much traffic, compare to the downtown of Cusco

When in Cusco you must visit San Blas, The Plaza is a good way to begin your experience of the people and the culture. Very friendly and willing to negotiate on all the local arts and crafts sold here.
