Many of the most popular tourist attractions in Cusco (Peru) such as the ruins of Sacsahuaman and the ones in the Sacred Valley (Pisac, Ollantaytambo), but also the cathedral, the Temple of the Sun, a few museums and others, can only be visited when you have a ‘Boleto Turistico’ (officially called BTG: Boleto Turistico General). This Boleto Turístico is a ticket that allows you to enter a number of well-known tourist sites in and around Cusco. The money you pay is for the municipality of Cusco and mainly used to maintain the archaeological sites.
