This five-hour tour offers a glimpse into how great the capital of the Incas once was and just how much was lost when it was conquered.

Highlights

  • Unearth the riches of the Inca Empire with this fascinating and thought-provoking afternoon tour of Cusco’s greatest landmarks and ruins
  • See the Santo Domingo Monastery, the Coricancha, the Sacsayhuaman, and the Plaza de Armas in Cusco
  • Head uphill to the mega fortress of Sacsayhuaman

Description

You will start your tour by visiting the Coricancha or the Temple of the Sun, which was built by the Inca Pachacutec. Upon the arrival of the Spaniards, this became the basis for the construction of the Santo Domingo Convent. Then, visit the Cathedral of Cuzco, the most imposing monument in the Main Square. Continue your tour to the fortress of Sacsayhuaman, one of the most emblematic buildings built by the Inca Pachacutec in the Fifteenth Century. This is a huge fortress built with large stones whose transportation remains a mystery. Each year on June 24, the feast of Inti Raymi is recreated here, during which the sun is worshipped. Continue to Quenqo, an archaeological complex for mainly religious uses. Finally, get to know Puka Pucara, which means Red Fortress. This was an architectural complex of alleged military use with multiple spaces, plazas, baths, aqueducts, walls, and towers. It is believed the entourage of the Inca used it while they rested in Tambomachay.
