Itinerary

Half DayCusco Cathedral

The tour of this magical city begins with a visit to the Cathedral of Cusco, where you can appreciate combined styles in their fine finishes that our guide will explain in more detail.

The Cathedral of Cusco is one of the most beautiful and significant monuments in America, whose construction is located under the foundations of the Royal Palace of the Incas. Upon conquering Cusco, the Spanish conquistadors demolished the palace and built the cathedral over a period of more than 50 years.

Qoricancha Inca Temple

Qorikancha was considered a sacred place for the Inca empire. This temple was destined for the worship of its supreme God: Inti (Sun), in Inca times this temple was decorated with gold, all its interior including statues and its exterior also possibly.
 
Upon the arrival of the Spanish, they kidnapped the Inca emperor, Atahualpa, demanding a ransom for his release. Most of the gold was melted down and paid as ransom for his release. The conquistadors, however, very much in colonial fashion, killed him upon receiving the ransom.

Sacsayhuaman

This impressive stone fortress is built on a hill with a wide view of the main square of the city of Cusco. This is one of the places where you can see the progress of Inca engineering. Because they did not use mortars to join stones weighing more than a ton.

Its carving on the edges of the stones was very precise so that they fit together. In fact, it’s so precise that you can’t even slide a piece of paper between them. However, it remains a mystery how the Incas transported these heavy stones here.

Qenqo

Located a few meters from Sacsayhuaman, Q’enqo was used by the Incas as a site to make sacrifices. In addition, the mummification of corpses was carried out here.

Tambomachay

Tambomachay served as a spa for the political elite of the Incas. Here are canals from which natural spring water flows from the nearby hot springs.

Puca Pucara

Coming from Quechua means strong red. It was named by the Incas for the color of the rock that turns reddish at sunset.

This place was used by the Inca military to safeguard the capital city, Cusco.
