UNFORGETTABLE CUSCO

Milenary Enchant

Cusco, a city impossible to imagine in its true dimension, offers its milenary delights and air of mystery around every stone.

Among the pre-Columbian monuments that survive in the Imperial City is, firstly, part of the impressive structure of the Coricancha. Located two blocks away from the Plaza de Armas, the building was a religious complex where the temples dedicated to the different deities of the Tahuantinsuyo were located.

On the very Plaza de Armas, on the area taken up today by the Church of the Company of Jesus, the Palace of Justice and the University, was the Amaru Kancha, residence of Inca Huayna Capac. Where the Basilica of the Cathedral has been built, rose the Kiswar Kancha, residence of Inca Viracocha. On land today occupied by the Portal (Arcades of Loaves) and some adjacent houses, was the Qasana, residenc of Inca Pachacutec, and the Qora Qora, home of Sinchi Roca, on which later would be built the Portal de Carnes e Inmuebles. In addition, on what is today the Portal de BelÚn (Arcades of Bethlehem) and on the buildings adjacent to Triunfo streets, was the Hatun Kancha, residence of Tupac Inca Yupanqui.
