After spending time in Cusco this felt over hyped. The items were almost identical in every shop, the shopkeepers very sedate and not much pedestrian traffic on the street. Very run of the mill, certainly not something to tell everyone about after returning home. Considering...More

It is a very busy street with many little artisan shops and restaurants. You can stroll along many "tiendas" or chill in one of the cafeterias or restaurants. Close to many other touristic attractions.

Rather just a busy, touristic street selling the same Andes paraphernalia you'll find everywhere else. Good place to head to to wander around looking for tours or decent restaurants, but I wouldn't call it an attraction in itself.

La calle es bonita pero casi solo hay las tiendas que venden cosas turisticas. En la noche el lugar es lo mismo como todas otras calles. Tal vez la taduccion del aleman era falso.
