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, it becames a "kissing place" for local couples, so if you are not with your sweetheart, be tactful and leave!

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!

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.
