El Mercado Tunqui

El Mercado Tunqui is located in the heart of Cusco. Featuring original and eye-catching interiors and exceptional customer service that starts right at the very beginning of the adventure, in Cusco itself.

Mercado is the Spanish word for market, and El Mercado Tunqui occupies the premises of a former market located only a couple of blocks from Cusco’s main Plaza de Armas. A market is an expression of a town’s culture and traditions, a space where these may be appreciated, fostered and protected. Visiting a market is an effective way of obtaining a deep and lasting impression of a city, a place where its pulse may be felt. Just as the countryside’s best products are brought to a market, El Mercado Tunqui brings the magic of the Apus—the spirits of the mountains—to the city.
