More Information

The city of Cusco is rich for the amount of tourist resources it presents, and for the history that precedes it. Among the tourist attractions to be found in Cusco, there are places like the Historical Centre of Cusco, which includes more than seven catholic churches of colonial origin.

THE CATHEDRAL OF CUSCO OR THE BASILICA CATHEDRAL OF CUSCO

It is the first site that we will visit, it is located in the Plaza de Armas of the city of Cusco or Cuzco; it was built with huge blocks of stone in 1560, over the Inca palace of Wiracocha in the Sunturwasi, in this wonderful religious construction you can appreciate beautiful wood carvings, embossed silver works and approximately 300 paintings of the Cusco School.

The Cathedral of Cusco has a Renaissance style façade that contrasts with the Baroque and Plateresque of its lavish interiors where the most significant religious examples of colonial art are preserved.

QORICANCHA OR TEMPLE OF THE SUN

It is one of the most important religious centres of the Inca empire, and it is definitely one of the best examples of the fusion of the Inca and Spanish cultures. It is located 2 blocks from the main square of Cusco; it houses paintings of the Cusco School and Inca structures that are true works of art.

Qoricancha was considered as the Royal House of the Sun of the Urin Qosqo for the Incas where they paid the highest obeisance to the God Inti (Sun). It also housed different temples dedicated to their Gods such as: Pachamama (Mother Earth), the Ray (Illapa), Rainbow (Kuychi), Chaska (Venus and the Stars), Quilla (Moon), the Solar Drum where the God Punchao (Golden Child) was located.

Nowadays, it is there where part of the Inti Raymi, also known as the festival of the sun, takes place.

SACSAYHUAMAN OR ROYAL HOUSE OF THE SUN

Located 2 Km. from the city of Cusco, it is one of the most enigmatic places on the planet, its 3 superimposed platforms of 390 mt. long, were built with “enormous carved stones” and fitted together with incredible precision; you can appreciate stones up to nine meters high and more than 120 tons of weight. This place is the head of the puma formed by the original layout of the imperial city of Cusco.

In the time of the Incas it was considered the Royal House of the Sun of the Hanan Qosqo for being a religious, administrative and political centre for the Incas.  Nowadays, the Inti Raymi or Festival of the Sun is celebrated here on the 24th of June every year.

QENQO

It is located 1 km. from Sacsayhuaman and 4 km. from the city of Cusco and will be your next stop.

Qenqo was a centre of astronomical and ceremonial Inca cult; it was dedicated to the mother earth. In this place there is an underground cavern where the mummification of the dead was carried out, an amphitheatre where there was a monolith carved in stone with figures of toads and monkeys of a great size and around it there are trapezoidal niches where the Incas placed their dead; nowadays, only half of the original structure remains.

PUCAPUCARA CUSCO

This will be the next place you will visit. It is located 10 minutes away from Qenqo and is known as the red fortress, thanks to the amount of iron present in its stones. It is deduced that this place was used as a military post and resting place, and it is possible that its function was that of a military space. It was the main control point for the entrance to the city of Cusco.

TAMBOMACHAY

It is the last site of the Cusco City Tour, it is located only 100 meters from Pucapucara and 8 km. to the northeast of the city of Cusco; it was used as a centre of worship and water cult. The enclosure is formed by a set of finely carved rocks, waterfalls, canals and aqueducts fed by nearby springs that come from the Ojos de Agua de los Nevados.

What is the Sacred Valley of the Incas like?

This valley was a sacred area for the Incas as it comprised an extensive territory very productive for agriculture.

The main products cultivated by the Incas were: corn, potatoes, olluco, quinoa and the coca leaf, considered a sacred plant. Today, agriculture is still one of the main activities of the inhabitants of this valley.

Due to the vast agricultural activity in the valley, the Incas decided to build their main temples and cities there.

The most important urban centres were Pisac, Yucay, Chinchero and Ollantaytambo. Even further into the jungle, Emperor Pachacutec ordered the construction of a beautiful citadel that would serve as his resting place and border with the jungle peoples: Machu Picchu.

The Salkantay and Veronica mountains (considered gods by the Incas) crown the beautiful landscape. Today, the river, the mountains and the land are still considered sacred by the people of Cusco who inhabit these lands. Many tourists come to the Sacred Valley to see its history and beauty.

Main citadels in the Sacred Valley to visit:

  • Pisac
  • Urubamba
  • Ollantaytambo
  • Chinchero
  • Maras
  • Moray

How do they build the floating islands?

The men are responsible for collecting the roots of the totora reeds when they come to the surface in the rainy season.

They then plait the roots and tie them together tightly with rope to make blocks. An island floats on about thirty blocks to which a layer of dry reed is added. And they are held in place with heavy stones in the water that serve as anchors to keep the island from moving.

An island can have a lifespan of 30 years and can house 5 to 10 families.

Did you know about the Uros Islands what?

The Uros Island is made up of some 80 artificial islands, which are often the first stop when visiting Lake Titicaca. Its inhabitants are considered to be the oldest in the area, and were nomadic people who came from Bolivia.

Today, some 2000 people live on the Uros islands. Their language is Aymara and they learn Spanish in the school on one of the islands.

The Uros Islands are built by their own inhabitants with totora reeds from the same lake and it takes them about a year to build each one, and they usually last about 30-40 years. They also use totora reeds for their boats.
