City Tour Cusco Itinerary:

This trip lasts half a day. We will pick you up at the hotel at about 1.30 pm. The groups will first visit the centre of Cusco, having with us a professional guide. First he will present the Cathedral (build in a Baroque style and having paintings of the Cusqueña school) and the temple of Qoricancha, more known as the gold covered temple (A place which we will appreciate in all its enchantment, the temple of the Thunderclap, Ray, Lightning, Rainbow, Stars and the temple of Santo Domingo). These attractions are important in a time of constant cultural development in architecture, religion and policy, started in the colonial time.

Next we will visit the fortress of Sacsayhuaman, situated on a mountain overlooking Cusco. Sacsayhuaman, a walled-complex is as many other Inca constructions made of large polished dry-stone walls, each boulder carefully cut to fit together tightly without mortar. Sacsayhuaman, is a huge, stunning site which holds the great house of the Sun, where the head of the Puma of Cusco resides. Its megalithic, zigzag stone walls were pieced together with amazing skill, drawing the snake and other Andean symbols, like a lightning bolt across a great field.

Following we will set course to Qenqo, also known as the Labyrinth. This temple dedicated to Mother Earth is a unique center of celebrations and astronomical studies. It has numerous ceremonial carvings, holes and canals cut into the rock. One of its features is a semi-natural underground chamber.

Later on we’ll visit Pucapucara, This complex contains several rooms, inner plazas, aqueducts, vantage points, and pathways. It might have served as a tambo or rest and lodging area.

Last but not least we will go to the archeological site of Tambomachay. Tambomachay might have fulfilled an important altar function linked to water and the regeneration of the land and closely linked with Pucapucara. The area covers about one hectare, and was made out of polygonal shaped set limestone.

We will return to Cusco around 6:30pm
