Cusco City by Yarik


Cusco is a beautiful city located in southern Peru, at 3, 300 meters or 11, 000 feet above sea level. The city of Cusco is world famous because of the numerous archaeological sites left by the ancient Inca culture over 500 years ago. Cusco is the gateway to one of the most spectacular archaeological sites that exists in South America, the Citadel of Machu Picchu, with its imposing Inca architectural setting, amidst mountains and deep canyons. On the city tour of Cusco, you will see places within the city, like the Q'oricancha (Inca Sun Temple), and the Inca ruins at Sacsayhuaman and Tambomachay.

Itinerary

At 8 am or 1 pm, we will meet you for the tour at the hotel. From here, you will head to Cusco's Plaza de Armas, where you will visit the famous cathedral. Following, you will continue on foot through an ancient Inca-built street from the Plaza de Armas to the Q'oricancha, the Temple of the Sun. This was the key spiritual center of the Incas, which leads to all four quarters of the Inca Empire. There is also a bronze, high altar to be seen.

From Q'oricancha, we will take our van and continued to the majestic Inca site, Sacsayhuaman, with its enigmatic, 70 ton monoliths, after that we will take a five minute van ride to the Q'enqo Inca site to see its fascinating Incan altars. Following, we will take another five minute drive to Puca Pucara, a small, circular Inca site. The final stop on our tour is Tambomachay, a water temple with impressive water fountains. We'll then drive back down to Cusco where the tour ends in the hotel.
