Barrio de San Blas
One of the oldest in the city, this neighborhood has streets whose patterns follow those of the Incas—narrow and steep much like a medieval city. The old houses have been built upon Inca stone walls. In and between the zig-zagging streets are picturesque little squares and viewpoints of the city. This area is also known as the Barrio de los Artesanos (Artisan Quarter), and it is dotted with workshops and stores of some of the most famous Cusqueño artists such as Hilario Mendívil, Edilberto Merida and Antonio Olave.
You must see the 12 point stone in this alley. The most famous cut stone of the Inkas. You will also find it's image impressed on your bottle of Cusquena Cerveza when you go out later that evening. Say to The Cross Keys then to Mama Africa.
