The city of Cusco is cultural heritage of humanity. It has beautiful and unique places like the main square, the artisans’ quarter called San Blas, and Santo Domingo Convent.

Outside the city, there are impressive attractions such as Sacsayhuamán, Qenko, Puca Pucara and Tampumachay, the Inca Hot Springs, Ollantaytambo complex, Písac and the enigmatic Moray platforms.

Inca Sacred Valley will surprise you, just like Písac, Calca, Yucay, Ollantaytambo, Urubamba, Chinchero and Maras; these places keep their traditions and ancestral customs alive.

The main touristic attraction is the famous Machu Picchu, one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

The sublime combination of Inca architecture and the Spanish influence has shaped the city, charming everyone that visits. It offers excellent hotels, very good restaurants and a wide variety of handcrafts. The city has beautiful spots that everyone should visit: churches, squares and traditional neighborhoods. Cusco is also the starting point to visit the Sacred Valley, nearby archaeological sites (Sacsayhuamán, Kenko, Puca Pucara and Tambomachay) and the beautiful south route, which includes Inca towns and impressive sites like Andahuaylillas, Tipón and Racchi.
