Face it, if for some reason you are in Cuzco and do to go to the Plaza de Armas, you missed a big part of the reason to visit the city. Don't miss this one, and do visit at night as well.

I love walking around Plaza de Armas, but there are so many aggressive people trying to sell me things, it takes the joy out it.
