CITY TOUR CUSCO

 The tour starts between 1:00 p.m. and 1:20 p.m. with the pick-up at your accommodation depending on the proximity to the historic center of the city. First you will visit the imposing Qoricancha (Temple of the Sun) in which we can appreciate the mix between Inca buildings (with its perfectly polished stone walls). After the visit to Qoricancha, we will go out of the city towards Sacsayhuaman where we will be able to appreciate enormous stone blocks of up to 40 tons perfectly placed one onto the other. Our guide will explain the importance of this place since prior to the arrival of the Spaniards and during the colony as this place witnessed one of the greatest battles between the Incas and Spaniards. 

We will continue towards the sector of Qenq’o (labyrinth) which derives its name from its roads that give the impression of being inside a labyrinth. The most important place will be an ancient ceremonial table, which was probably the last lodging or resting place of Pachacuteq, the Inca emperor. 

We will continue on our tourist bus to Puca Pucara (red fortress) which was an important control center for people who wanted to enter the city of Cusco in Inca times. Given the importance of the city, which was sacred, all travelers had to first purify themselves of body and soul, which could be done in Tambomachay. The last place we will visit is where you can still appreciate the skill and knowledge in hydraulic engineering achieved by the Incas. 

The tour ends in the city of Cusco at 6:30pm approximately.
