Mercado El Molino - Shopping Cusco - Peru

If you don't mind getting lost and repeatedly jostled by fellow shoppers as you walk back and forth along the endless rows of overflowing stalls, then spend an afternoon hanging out at the captivating Mercado Mollina. Forget Machu Picchu logo t-shirts, watercolor paintings and llama postcards, because you won't find a single souvenir or trinket in any of the mercado's several hundred stalls. Instead, you'll find nearly anything you may ever want to buy. Underwear, socks, jeans, shoes, sandals, belts, electronics, shirts, winter coats, plates, appliances, make up, toiletries...and of course, heaps and heaps of obscenely underpriced DVDs and CDs. Sprawled over the space of several city blocks, it's the kind of shopping experience that dares to suggest that if you can't buy it at Mollina, then it can't be bought. Collectivos run from Choquechaca ($0.25) and taxis from the city center cost less than $1. Be sure guard your belongings closely; don´t bring valuables-leave your camera behind.
