MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE PLACES YOU’LL VISIT ON THIS TOUR:
The Cathedral, also known as The Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption of the Virgin, is the principal temple in the city of Cusco. The tour starts by entering the cathedral through the Church of the Sacred Family and works its way through the entire cathedral, including the adjacent Church of Triumph.
The tour continues with a visit to the most important religious site of the Incas, the Qorikancha. The Temple of the Sun was the center of the entire complex Incan religion, making Cusco the Holy City of the Incas. Nowadays it is still possible to observe the advanced engineering and architectural techniques developed and utilized by the Incas.
This Incan archeological site is known as the “Ceremonial Temple of Sacsayhuaman.” Here you can observe the huge megalithic walls that are among the greatest architectural works from the peak of the Incan empire. Located about 2 kilometers outside the city, this site also offers an incomparable panoramic view of the city and surrounding area.
This site of Incan worship, dedicated to magical-religious rituals, is of particular interest due to its semicircular amphitheater and subterranean passageways.
This temple was built for the cult of water, as well as a retreat for the Incan King to rest. It contains a series of aqueducts, canals, and waterfalls that pass over the rocks. Even today, the original source of the water remains unknown.
This archeological site is a military fortress with large walls, terraces, and steps. It formed an important part of the defense of Cusco.
