I went here because I love shopping, and thought it would be a great place to get more authentic/local produced goods than the markets. They have a small room where you can read about how the textiles are produced and the history of textile production...More

The products are absolutely gorgeous, you really can appreciate the beauty in comparison to what they sell on the streets. The products are not cheap, but they had a lot on sale and several smaller items that were in my (student) price range. The museum...More

As noted by other reviewers, this is a small establishment on one of Cusco's main streets. It is near SerPost, the post office (if you are looking to mail a postcard). I stopped by because I was in the area. I did not stay long....More

The 'Centro de Textiles Tradicionales' is in Cusco itself, near downtown. Walking time is less than 8 minutes from Plaza de Armas, downhill on Avenida el Sol, a wide street for Cusco standards.
