On our way to our hotel ( San Agustin International ), I was surprised to see that Cusco had cobblestone streets, stone buildings with big wooden carved doors and central courtyards, fountains with statues of inca warriors, and the mountains in the background. With such a fantastic sight it will make you want to study the history of the Inca people and the Spanish conquerers who made this city.
Huge rounds of bread which were bigger than my head.

San Pedro market is also home to local medicine. This is located at the lower half of the market in a row selling medicinal herbs and diagnosing symptoms for locals seeking traditional remedies. In this stall you can see different kinds of teas and coffees. I bought a box of coca tea here to take home as a souvenir to friends.

The San Pedro Market is the center of Peruvian life. Part of the fun was listening to the witty exchanges between neighbouring stall holders, as they compete for the attention of customers. People watchers could spend an entire day among the sea of vendors listening to the haggling over prices, watching the tourists trying on faux alpaca sweaters and eavesdropping on the " mamitas " gossiping with children strapped to their backs.
I highly recommend this place to every traveler visiting Cusco. San Pedro Market is a great option that is within a 10 minute stroll from the main plaza.
