I didn't like Cusco overall, but found the square here to be an enjoyable experience. I spent a couple of hours just sitting on the steps of one of the churches, and watching the sites. I did visit one of the museums and wasn't impressed.

If you like crowd, life and stores, this is it :) You can find everything here, but in the same time the atmosphere is relaxing and take it easy - totally different than in western cities. Must visit if you are in Cusco.

Really beautiful square. Street vendors will hound you. The architecture is really beautiful. Locals hang out here. Restaurants are expensive and touristy.

Great little area with bars/shops and restaurants, would have given 5 stars but for the street sellers pushing fake drugs, these people are everywhere and not to be trusted if you're into that sort of thing!

Spanish Conquistadors roamed these plazas at one time and their marks are still obvious today. Very historic with a strong European influence. The Catholic Church has blended with the Quechua culture and created some unusual relics in the church in the Plaza.

Durante o dia é agradável e não chove. No final da tarde esfria e a noite a temperatura cai bastante e venta muito, entre 1 e 7 graus com sensação térmica de mais frio.
