The Plaza Regocijo is one of the places you can not miss if you are in the historic center of the city of Cusco.
It is also known as Plaza Kusipata which translates as the little step of joy, which was divided from the Plaza de Armas de Cusco during the colonial era by the construction of mansions. In this space it was common to organize different celebrations such as bullfights or contests.
