San Blas is the artisan precinct of Peru’s most famous handicrafts town, Cusco.

This area of workshops and studios, galleries and shops is the home of Cusco’s weavers, sculptors and potters. The artists’ enclave is ideal for a stroll, its cobblestone streets lined with whitewashed adobe houses decorated with contrasting blue doors and window frames.

You’ll also see remnants of Inca walls in this hilly enclave, where some narrow streets are so steep they are stepped.

San Blas is a perfect late-afternoon destination, with bars and restaurants, galleries and studios for relaxed visits into the evening.

Practical Info

San Blas focuses on the hilltop Plaza San Blas and the simple church of San Blas, with its golden altar and carved pulpit. The plaza is several blocks northwest of central Plaza de Armas, off Cuesta San Blas.
