AMERICA’S ARCHEOLOGICAL CITY
Cusco, Universal Patrimony of Culture and Art, is reknown worldwide as the Americas’ Archeological City. Each one of its buildings becomes a historic piece of art by itself, protected and surrounded by great mountains and landscapes. Located in the south part of Peru at 3,400 m.a.s.l. and 1,268 km of distance from Lima, Cuzco was in the past the center of the great Inka civilization.
When visiting Cuzco, you could go by "El Valle Sagrado de los Incas" or visit historic places like Sacsayhuamán or the amazing "Tambomachay" Inka Fortress, the Inka Spa at 7 km from Cusco. Closer to the city we’ll find important historical places such as Pucapucará, a fortress 6 km from Cusco, Callejón Loreto, or Hatun Rumuyoc where you could find the famous art religious museum with the twelve-edge stone.
Finally, you must visit the center of all atractions, Machupicchu, the misterious and millennial metropolis of spirits and magical silence, surrounded by stone walls with more than a meter of thickness. Machupicchi is located at 2300 m.a.s.l. and enjoys warm weather during the day and a slight cold at right. At the top of the hill, the visitor finds itself in front of a fantastic citadel.
Cusco is a special city because of its landscapes, the art treasures, its various craftmanship and its incomparable folklore of dances and songs, which makes Cusco the main Peruvuan Tourist Attraction.
Further explotation uncovered and ancient highway, the "Inka Trail". The "Inka Trail" was a royal road that connected Machupicchu to Cusco, the Inca capital. Following the time-wornout grooves of centuries of footsteps, camping with striking views of the high mountains and dense jungle, crossing two high passes (4,270 m.a.s.l.)m we arrive at Inti Punku, the Sun Gate, for our first view of Machupicchu, spread below us.
