I stayed in an apartment on this street while in Cusco. It was great. It was within walking distance to everything including the Plaza de Armas and the Centro market. When I went, there was a parade, which was great. There are tons of markets...More

This is one of the main streets of Cusco linking to the main square. You'll probably walk along here at some point during your stay and if you do, there are a few stores, a market, some shops (and a nice restaurant - Valentina). You'll...More

As a few reviews have mentioned, it is just a street. But it is the main street of Cusco. Along here you will see money changers, the offices of all the airlines (LAN,Peruvian,LCP,etc). The beautiful Justice Hall. You can walk to Qoriochanca thru this street...More

Not really an attraction just a very busy street off the main square in Cusco with lots of shops, also several Banks if you need one. The most interesting building is the Palace of Justice with a magnificent facade. Some benches so you can sit...More

Cannot really see this as an 'attraction'. Unlike the nearby plazas it is a busy noisy road full of traffic. Apart from the Palace of Justice building it is mainly banks and similar institutions (at the top end anyway). There are far nicer spots in...More
