Shop the handcrafted goods created by local artisans.
While the San Blas district is a great place to pick out treasured keepsakes, another beauty of Cusco is that there are a tons of opportunities to shop local handcrafted goods. Along almost every street you'll stumble upon at least several teeny-tiny shops packed to the brim with colorful items. Whatever Peruvian memento your mind can imagine — bracelets, blankets, beanies, scarves, keychains, etc. — chances are you'll come across it at a very good bargain.
And the fact that the majority of these items were handmade by a local artisan makes them that much more meaningful!
