Tour del barrio San Blas con vista Panóramica en Cusco

San Blas neighborhood tour with panoramic view in Cusco

Visit the most famous Inca and colonial Quarter of Cuzco

Visit the San Blas neighborhood of Cusco, the most famous quarter in Cusco because of its millenary history. During the Inca period, this neighborhood was known as T’oqokachi, a name that in the Quechua language means Salt Cave, during that time, significant families dedicated to architecture and crafts use to live in this neighborhood. When the Spaniards arrived at Cusco in 1534, they changed its name by San Blas in honor of a 3rd century bishop, who dedicated himself to heal people and animals.

During the tour of San Blas neighborhood, we will stroll in its narrow streets (Cuesta de San Blas), Plazoleta of San Blas, San Blas lookout point, art galleries of local artisans and most importantly: we will visit the Church of San Blas that dates back to the 17th century — this church is famous because of its pulpit, carved from a single piece of Cedar wood.

In conclusion: The San Blas neighborhood is picturesque, bohemian, artistic, colonial and colorful — apart from that, during this walking tour, we will also visit the panoramic lookout point of San Cristobal (from where you can see all the magical Cusco that has the shape of a Puma), the 12-angled stone and the 13-angled stone.
