“Nice Square”
Tercentenary Square is a cosy and hidden square, situated over Plaza de Armas; I met it casually, coming down from San Blas Square. It is an excellent belvedere if you want to "spy" the activities at Plaza de Armas, but far from "crowd". At sunset...more

On the day we visited here the locals were preparing for the winter solstice and practicing dancing in full costume. It appears that they often practice their dancing here, although not always in costume.

Tercentenary Square ist in my opinion part of the Plaza de Armas of Cusco, but do be honest, I do not know where the real difference between both squares is. Probably the Tercentenary Square is only the inner quarter of the Plaza de Armas.... However,...More

Tercentenary Square is a section of the Plaza de Armas in Cusco and also a bustling section of the city. The square has stunning views of the churches and the Statue of Jesus. There are a plethora of restaurants and shops surrounding the square.

This is by far the best place to be in all of Cusco. The Square has spectacular views of the hills lit up at night and has so many great restaurants and places to shop at. A must do while in Cusco!

Spend your time wandering Cusco and put this square on your list but don't fret if you don't make it to this spot. I suggest having a general itinerary of Cusco sites and wander. You will be constantly entertained and discover new things around every...More

I would not really call this a Square; it is more, I think, of a space adjacent to the city's main square. It is however very pretty and good to people watch.
