In Cusco, every corner tells a story and every story is captivating, mystical, and inviting. Imagine walking through streets with names like “Ataúd” [Coffin], Siete Culebras [Seven Serpents], and “Arpías” [Harpies]. In these streets time seems to have stopped, every corner offers a piece of history, and the stones remain alive because they have survived intact.
Cusco witnessed the arrival of the Spanish, and yet to this day it conserves ancestral magic which captivates the thousands of visitors who each year form part of its living history.
Cusco, acknowledged as the historic capital of Peru, renowned as the navel of the Earth. It is now the gateway to Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu among other attractions. Check out our Tours of Machu Picchu from Cusco.
