Cuzco, Cusco or Qosqo

Cuzco, Cusco or Qosq'o... many ways to call the city that was once the foremost city of the Inca empire and where you can still admire the remains of one of the most impressive civilisation that have never been.

The historical past of the city keeps holding a powerful hold on today.

Huge Inca-built ramparts line steep, narrow paving stone streets and the shape of the foundations of modern buildings...Everything in the city make you feel like you went back in the past, from the stand where you can find handmade products like those famous poncho made of Lama wool!
Discover the ancient treasures of the Incas period visiting the tiny colonial mansions and churches.

We all know about the Spanish explorer Pizarro that sacked much of the Inca city in 1535...But there is still great remains not to miss to visit in the region: palaces of the Incas, the Temple of the Sun...the Temple of the Virgins of the Sun.

Have a look at the Cathedral of Santo Domingo at Cusco, it is one of the most noteworthy Spanish colonial buildings of the city.
