Description

Four roads once led from Cusco's main square to the four corners of the Inca empire that extended from what is today Ecuador and part of Colombia to northern Chile and Argentina, including all of Peru and Bolivia. An empire almost as vast as the Roman empire, the Inca nation was connected by a road network stretching over 23,000 km. (14,300 miles). Due to its position as the capital of the Inca dynasty, contemporary Cusco, a city 3,300 meters above sea level (10,500 ft.) is a showcase of several different cultures: Pre-Inca, Inca, Colonial and republican. But Cusco was more than just a capital city. It was an administrative, military and holy city, similar to Mecca, and is now the oldest inhabited city of the Americas. Many kinds of architecture are found here and one's eyes can feast on their splendid variety and combinations.

Ruins, temples, churches, and mansions make this a memorable destination, full of history and culture. A city with a splendid legacy, Cusco's winding cobbled streets transport visitors The Inca's most sacred building in Cusco, the Korikancha (Temple of the Sun), today forms part of the Spanish church of Santo Domingo through its rich and beautiful past.
