In Peru, the Plaza de Arma (Spanish Plaza de Arma) is generally called the Arms Square. Nearly every city in South America has a central square, where the most important churches and historic buildings are gathered. People like to sit on the benches in the center of the square "Pasar", feed birds, read books, daze and chat with strangers. In Cusco, this square is Arms Square. There is no doubt that Weapons Square is the busiest place in Cusco. Every day thousands of tourists pass by, where the local people rest and play. Indigenous women and children dressed in traditional costumes sit in the nearby alleys and on the steps at the church entrance, forming a beautiful scene.
