About Cusco

The city of Cusco, the ancient capital of the Inca Empire, was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1983.

 

Along its cobbled streets, one finds buildings built by the Incas, in addition to Andean baroque colonial structures. This magical city has exciting night life, as well as cafés and restaurants to satisfy every taste.
Ten minutes from the city, one can see the massive walls of the Sacsayhuamán fortress, as well as other important archaeological sites. Also located in the department of Cusco is Machu Picchu, the most important and beautiful legacy of ancient Peruvians, which has been named one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
