TRAVEL AND TOUR INFORMATION

CUSCO (also spelt Cuzco with a "z"), mythical capital of the Inca Empire, preserves its stone walls and battlements with pride, evoking the greatness of the "Children of the Sun". It's a city packed full of historicalCUSCO PERU CUSCO monuments and relics,CUSCO PICTURE CUSCO of myths and legends, which seem to come to life every time you walk through its century old streets.

At 3,360 meters above sea level (m.a.s.l.), in the Huatanay valley of the southeastern Andes of Peru, visiting Cusco is an unforgettable experience, as it allows you to uncover some of the mysteries of the Incas, because Cusco was the center, the "navel" of the Andean world.

The history of the Imperial City of Cusco, the legend goes, begins inCUSCO PICTURE CUSCO the 11th or 12th century when the first Inca, Manco Capac, obeying the dictates of the Sun God, founded Cusco.

On March 23, 1534, Francisco Pizarro, the Spanish conquistador of Peru, refounded the Inca city as a Spanish colonial settlement.

Today, Cusco, the archeological capital of Peru andCUSCO PICTURE CUSCO America, is a city open to the world, warmly welcoming its many visitors.
