Cusco Plazas

Cusco Plaza de Armas

Cusco has many lovely plazas, which double as parks. Here are just a few of my favorites.

All of these plazas have vendors who can be mildly annoying or even obnoxious. The number of vendors quadrupled during the unemployment crisis caused by the pandemic.

Keep in mind that they’re just trying to make a living, even if they may seem pushy. The Plaza de Armas has the most, so if you are bothered by street vendors, try Plaza San Francisco.
