Stop At: Cusco 08007, Peru
Our Cusco City Tour starts at Coricancha, also known as the “Temple of the Sun” (QuriKancha golden temple), built on the orders of Inca Pachacútec (1438 – 1572) and which, when the Spanish arrived, became the base for the convent of Santo Domingo. During the Inca Empire the temple was dedicated to worship of the sun (“Inti”) and was at times filled with gold. After that you will be taken to Sacsayhuaman, one of the emblematic buildings of the Inca Empire (just a few minutes from the center of the city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site) built by the Inca Pachacutec in the 15th Century. It is a vast fortress built from huge stones; how they were transported and worked is still a mystery. It has been calculated that what we see today is only twenty percent of the original structure, because when the Spanish arrived they used its stones for new buildings such as the cathedral.
Places that are visited:
• Santo Domingo Monastery / Qoricancha.
• Puca Pucara.
