Had fun with my camera taking in the Plaza and trying for some wonderful pictures as I soaked in the history and watched people from all over the world out exploring.

Beautiful building and lovely landscaping with a large fountain in the center. Loads of restaurants and shops to buy touristy things. The only downside is the overly aggressive people selling items, massages or trying to get you into their restaurant.

Really cool centre of the city with a lot of character. Heaps of markets and food places around. Be careful of art and massage street sellers - you will get very used to saying "no, gracias" here.

A big square with lots of colonial buildings of different colours and wooden balconies. Flowers and seats for you to rest and watch the world go by.

I've chance to be in Cusco two times and I just loved main plaza. Many small restaurants surround main park, many bunches to seat and watch people ( my hobby)

Great place to while away an hour or so whilst watching the world go by, clean, tidy & traffic free surrounded by interesting architecture, cafes & restaurants.

We found a parade happening on Sunday morning and locals told us it is typical to have parades on Sunday mornings. Very interesting to see women in high heels on the cobblestone streets.

It’s relaxing to just sit and enjoy the view. No phones no electronics, just sit and people watch. Plus you can’t go wrong with the awesome history!
