ore than 450 years ago, when some Spaniards decided to conquer the lands of ancient Peru. In search of honor, adventure and riches, they never imagined what
they would find on coming across the city of Cusco.
In a way, it could be the same for visitors who cross the oceans to see for themselves the splendor and beauty of what was the capital of one of the biggest empires in human history: the Tahuantinsuyo.
To come to this city and walk thorugh its streets is to be carried straight into the past. Beyond what is purely tangible, something in the atmosphere of Cusco brings forth simultaneous reaction of surprise, fascination and respect.
But also moderness and a will for progress are breathed in this magnetic, cosmopolitan city whose people still follow their customs and traditions.
