The Plaza de San Blas is a very special place in the city of Cusco that presents different interesting spaces that you can visit.
This small square belongs to the neighborhood of San Blas that during the Inca period was known as T'oqokachi, a Quechua word that means "Salt Cave". In addition, in this site were found the mortal remains of Pachacutec, so it is understood that the place was part of the Inca elite.
It is a wonderful place for having cobblestone streets, which through a slope you reach the destination and on the way you can take your best pictures of the memory with a panoramic view of the historic center of Cusco.
It is common to encounter handicraft vendors or Andean women with llamas in case you like to get instagrammable moments inside the Plazoleta de Belen or near the spot.
