Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I don't know whether it was water saving or shortages but most fountains we saw in Peru were only working every now & then? This is a small square but surrounded by the large Church of San Francisco, museums & a theatre. A pleasant enough spot to sit & enjoy the weather plus the fountain was splashing merrily!

Nice enough but nothing that you won’t see across South America.

Plenty of outside space and some interesting buildings.

A small plaza few steps from Plaza de Armas, nothing exceptional apart from the relaxing atmosphere of Cusco and some interesting surrounding buildings with a small green area at the centre

Indeed this is a meeting place for many tours, but it is also a nice spot to spend some time and people watch. It is bordered by an old church, San Francisco, a school, a Roman style arch, and has a nice fountain. It is about 5 minute walk from Plaza de Armas or Mercado de San Pedro so it is probably on your way touring Cusco and worth a look.

All of the parks are a lovely rest from the hustle and bustle of life, and this one is no different. Lovely fountain and great to cool off if you sit close enough to the spray.

A nice little oasis in the middle of a criss-cross of streets, about five minutes from Plaz de Armas. Usual walkways, shrubs & trees, surrounded by cobbled streets. In one corner is the wonderful Museum & Catacombs of San Francisco (which is well worth a visit.)

A large square, slightly sloped, where we had a rest during our tiring tour of Cusco. We sat on a bench next to a local family, enjoyed the nearby garden and fountains, looked at beautiful San Francisco Church built in the 16th century. Relaxing.

A smaller square than the plaza de Armas which is right beside this plaza, this is a great place for people watching and relaxing. I recommend spending some time here at night as the fountain in the middle changes colours and provides a nice atmosphere. There's a lot of street vendors who are selling random snacks for cheap.

This was our first run in with a little woman holding a llama. She wanted 20 soles for our pictures on our phone that we took with her. Kind of crazy, and I didn't have that many small coins but I was not giving her that much. Just a little annoying considered she came up to us and never said the price before the picture was already.

We basically just used this plaza as a walk way to other things

This nice quaint square has many things going for it, it is a hub for transportation drop-offs etc. Many folks pass thru this on way to other plazas nearby. I found perfect eating and sipping places on this square...enjoy!
