Cusco Peru Destination Guide

The city of Cusco used to be the capital of the Inca Empire. It was included in the World Heritage List by UNESCO in 1983, and it is one of the most important destinations in Peru.

The towns of Pisac, Maras, Chinchero and Ollantaytambo are spread along the Sacred Valley of the Incas, only one hour away from Cusco.

The enigmatic complex of Machu Picchu is the most important and beautiful legacy of the ancient Peruvians. It is located in the historic sanctuary of the same name, which is also one of the few places in the Americas included in both the World Cultural and Natural Heritage Lists by UNESCO. Machu Picchu is One of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
