Where you'll be

The Historical Center of Cusco was declared a Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 1983. Located in the heart of the Andes, the city became under the rule of the Inca Pachacútec in a complex urban center with differentiated religious and administrative functions. Unique testimony of the ancient Inca civilization, the city represents the sum of 3000 years of indigenous and autonomous cultural development in the Andes of Peru.
