The city of Cusco, the former capital of the Inca Empire, is a major destination in Peru because of its significant Inca-colonial history. It is also the gateway for each traveler visiting the crown jewel of the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu. When you arrive in Cusco, take it slow to acclimate to the city’s high elevation of 11,152 feet (3,399 meters). Some visitors enjoy taking a casual stroll to the pleasant atmosphere of Plaza de Armas, the city’s cultural center. The plaza has sweeping views of the city and surrounding mountains. A statue at the center of the courtyard pays homage to Pachacuti, the 9th Inca ruler who founded the Inca Empire and the site of Machu Picchu.
The religious complex of the Inca Empire, Koricancha (Qorikancha), contained the Temple of the Sun, the most sacred site in the Inca religion. According to scholars, the temple was dedicated to Inti, the sun god. The temple was destroyed during the Spanish conquest and its foundation was used to build Santo Domingo Church and Convent. Partial ruins of the Inca temple are located in Santo Domingo Plaza.
At the Centro de Textiles Tradicionales del Cusco, you can watch local craftspeople perform traditional weaving techniques from various regions of Peru. After a casual day, enjoy one of Cusco’s local restaurants. For traditional Andean fare, Chicha por Gason Acurio’s menu includes traditional foods of the region grown by local producers.
