Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Cusco Cathedral, Portal Belen Plaza de Armas, Cusco 08002 Peru

Constructed between 1560 and 1654 upon the foundations of the Inca palace of Wiracocha. This immense building includes the chapel of Jesus, Joseph and Mary, and the church of the Triumph. While the construction lasted for over a century, the decoration went on for 300 years and today more than 400 paintings of the Cusco School can be seen amidst beautifully carved altars and a magnificent choir stand. Unfortunately, the Cathedral cannot be visited on Sundays.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Qorikancha, Plazoleta de Santo Domingo, Cusco Peru

Meaning "cloister of gold", is located within the monastery of Santo Domingo, where the remains of the former sun temple of the Incas are found. Inside, one can admire some astonishing, slanted Inca walls, windows and niches in trapezoidal shapes that have withstood several earthquakes due to its´ anti-seismic design, having been constructed with extremely close-fitting stones.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Sacsayhuaman, Cusco 08000 Peru

This Quechua word (the still widely spoken language of the Incas) literally translates to "decorated head of puma". It was used as the palace from which the descendant of the sun ruled his people. The Europeans believed it to be a fortress of some kind due to the immense blocks of rock that were used in its construction. Cusco tradition claims that around 70,000 people worked here for 50 years.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Q'enqo, Cusco Peru

The translation is “labyrinth” and it is probably called that way because of the two caves which hide under an immense rock with carved platforms or “altars,” representing the so-called "sacrificial rock". There is also an “amphitheater” with 19 niches which was probably used for giving offerings and a large rock sculpture (that is said to represent a puma, the deity of the site). Interesting zigzag channels and a great variety of carved stones are also found on top of the huge rock formation.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Puka Pukara Archaeological Complex, 08000, Peru

Meaning “Red Fortress,” this massive construction was used for storing food and also as a control garrison for travelers that visited Cusco in Inca times.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Tambomachay, Cusco 08000, Peru

A beautiful ceremonial site which sits, literally, on a hillside spring, and was used as a place to worship water. Today, the permanently flowing water is still associated with long life and fertility by the people of Cusco.
