San Blas, Cusco

4.4
#4 of 18 in Neighborhoods in Peru
The historical heart of the city, San Blas impresses with its cobbled streets, antique homes, and wealth of attractions catering to the tourism industry. A blend of Spanish and native influence, the neighborhood overflows with age-old ambience, a result of centuries of habitation by locals and colonial newcomers alike. Ascend the steep hill to the neighborhood's upper portion for sweeping views of the plaza and surrounding city, as well as a chance to view some intricate woodcarving at the temple here. Afterwards, you can find plenty of entertainment and souvenirs in the lower portion, chock-full of hostels, bars, restaurants, gift shops, and backpacker hangouts.
