Cusco was the capital of the Inca Empire from the 13th century until the Spanish Conquest. The conquistadors were astonished by its beauty, narrow streets and spectacular stonework. Today, visitors are equally charmed when they arrive. Walking through Cusco is a unique experience. The historical centre is a fascinating mix of Inca and colonial architecture, with lavish churches built on foundations of Inca temples. You’ll see people in traditional Andean dress as well as more modern attractions like excellent restaurants, cafes and bars. This ancient Inca capital offers so much more than simply Machu Picchu!
