  • It is the default place to buy refixandes and crafts. There are many locals but there is not much variety because in most they sell the same products. It's a good place to have fun for a while, but if you want better prices, you find the same cheapest products in Cusco. Even cheaper even in Lima if it's on your tour, it's business to go around downtown shops

  • At the bottom of the train there is nothing left but to pass through the center of the market. All the little premises are small and contain more or less all of them. Cotton shirts, different types of garments in alpaca and all their combinations, hats, etc. There are also small items basically related to machu pichu and everything Inca. Prices are not bad compared to cusco, but simepre you can haggle and improve it
