Cuzco Holidays

Cradle of the Inca Empire

The sacred city of the Incas is a dramatic reminder of the Inca Empire and serves as a gateway to ancient Andean culture and heritage.

Perched high in the Andes Mountains, Cuzco is now layered with history; Spanish colonial edifices are built directly atop Inca walls. Walk along the cobblestone streets, through plazas packed with the Quechua-speaking descendants of the Incas, meandering past impressive colonial and ancient Inca palaces and seeing the powerful grip the past has on the present city.
