Cusco, Peru

CAPTIVATING, HISTORICAL, ADVENTUROUS

Cusco Overview

Once the capital of the Inca empire, Cusco is nestled in the Andes Mountains at 11,000 feet. As you walk among the cobblestone streets of Cusco, you will hear Quechua and pan-flute music and observe traditional dress, too. Admire the 12-angled stone crafted by the Inca and contemplate the presence of colonial design at the church of Santo Domingo, constructed above the Inca temple of Coricancha. A must-visit city in Latin America, Cusco's proximity to Machu Picchu, a UNESCO World Heritage site also named the one of the new 7 Wonders of the World, makes it an increasingly popular destination.
