CUSCO HISTORY


Cusco, the mystical capital of the Inca Empire, proudly keeps its walls made of stone that evoke the nobility of the sons of the sun. Cusco is the city full of historic monuments and relics, myths and legends that seem to be reborn every time we pass by its centenarian streets.
Visiting the old city of Cusco, located at the Huatanay River Valley, in the southeastern Andes in Peru, 3,360 m.a.s.l. is an unforgettable experience that allows uncovering some of the Incas' mysteries since Cusco was the center of the Andean world.
The history of the Imperial city, according to a legend, goes back to the XI or XII Century when the first Inca, Manco Capac, founded Cusco in compliance with a mandate from the Sun God. On March 23, 1534, Francisco Pizarro carried out the Spanish foundation of Cusco.

Inca City Description
The Incan Center
At present, Cusco, the archaeological capital of America, is a city open to the world that warmly welcomes the visitors, who astonishingly watch its strange look, which merges in the same urban environment and with particular harmony, pre-Columbian monuments such as Amaru Cancha (Snake Fence), Kiswar Kancha, among others; with jewels from miscegenation like the Cathedral, the Church, La Merced Convent and the San Blas Temple.
Cusco is surrounded by impressive archaeological remains like the Machu Picchu citadel, the Saqsaywaman fortress, the Ollantaytambo complex and picturesque towns such as Pisaq, Calca and Yucuay, which keep their ancestors' traditions.
