Overview

DESCRIPTION

City Tour in Cusco is a half-day excursion, where tourist attractions are visited inside and outside the city of Cusco, it is one of the most popular tours by tourists who come to know Cusco and Machu Picchu.

Cusco, the most important pre-Columbian metropolis on the continent, is depository and inheritor of a cultural tradition, developed throughout the Peruvian territory since 18 thousand years before Christ.

It is a living museum where the greatness of ancient times is still perceived in its atmosphere.

To make a complete description or interpretation of Cusco and its privileged inhabitants, would be an immense work of hundreds and even thousands of volumes.

It is that fate has rewarded this “Navel of the World” with a privileged and excellent quality of nature, geography and people; capable of having developed one of the largest and most advanced civilizations for its time.

The City Tour in the city of Cusco will allow you to know the most impressive archaeological and religious tourist places of the imperial city of Cusco such as:

  • The Cathedral of Cusco,majestic symbol of Andean religious syncretism (Inca – European).
  • The Qoricancha,the lavish Inca Temple; also known as the Temple of the Sun.

  • The Amphitheater of Qenqo,enigmatic rock headlands and labyrinthine paths.
  • The Military Fortress of Puca Pucara,large terraces, stone walls and stairways.
