CUSCO

Travel in Cusco

Colonial Cathedral in Cusco

Cusco is situated at 3,400 meters (11,000 feet) above sea level, surrounded by mountains and valleys. It has a population of 300,000 inhabitants - most of them indigenous - and has much beauty to offer: the panorama of the Andes, famous Inca ruins and the magical ruins of Machu Picchu. The capital of the ancient Inca empire and the oldest continuously inhabited city on the continent, Cusco is now an important link in the South American travel network. Its legacy as the hub of the Inca empire is readily apparent: Most of the city streets are lined with Inca-built stonewalls and crowded with Quechua-speaking descendants of the Incas. The city has magnificent repositories of colonial art such as the Cathedral (begun in 1559) and La Merced Church. There is also Coricancha, The Tenple of the Sun, in the middle of the city center, which was formerly covered with gold (the stonework is all that remains) and the Museo de Arqueológia, the interior of which is filled with metal and gold work, jewelry, pottery, textiles and mummies. And four magnificent ruins - Sacsayhuamán, Qenko, Puca Pucara and Tambo Machay - are nearby.
