Holidays To Cusco

It's Never Too Late To Book Your Holiday deals

Cusco is a city in south-eastern Peru. Cusco serves as the capital of the region and province of the same name. Cusco has long been a major tourist destination in Peru owing to it being the site of the historical capital of the Incan Empire. The city has been designated as a World Heritage Site, and is considered the historical capital of Peru. Holidays to Cusco are all about being in awe of the remains of the Incan Empire and its predecessors, the Killke culture, who are thought to have founded the city and its walled complex, known as the Saksaywaman. Building upon the original inhabitants’ work, the Incas built the city to its full glory, and until the Spanish sacked the city in the 16th Century, stealing all its gold and silver. To this day, Spanish cathedrals and architecture are dominant within the city, while only ruins of the once-great civilisation remain.

Plaza de Armas

Built by the Incans this massive square is steeped in history. Legend states the plaza is located at the very centre of the Inca Empire. Vintage landmarks from both Spanish and Andean times are located there such as the 16th century Spanish church. Located in Cusco’s historic centre the plaza is a hive of activity.

Machu Picchu

Explore the sacred city of the Incas while hiking across stunning landscapes. Discover the alluring 12 acres of temples, gardens and aqua ducts that make up the fabulous city. Several trails from Cusco are readily available to the Temple of the Sun.

Explore the Temple of the Sun

Temple of the Sun or Qoricancha is also known as the ‘Court of Gold’. This is due to the 700 gold plated walls that reflected light all around the court. Gold adorned every corner of the grand temple. Qoricancha is located just past Plaza de Armas.

The Cathedral

The Cathedral located within the Plaza de Armas is one of Cusco’s most iconic locations. Constructed in 1550 the building reflects Baroque style architecture. Within are world famous paintings showing the shattering earthquake that rocked Cusco in 1650.

The Planetarium

Although small and rather homely in appearance the Cusco Planetarium is well equipped with state of the art equipment to take you on a journey across the stars. Reserve your place early; on the shuttle that plies from Plaza de Armas to the planetarium daily.

Sacsayhuaman

This is an ancient Incan fort; it is resplendent with beautiful stone masonry work and stunning views across the countryside. Huge carved stones make up beautiful twisting walls. To be seen are the Inca throne and mighty foundation stones, part of which is in ruins.

Pre-Columbian Art Museum

The museum is home to a stunning collection of Peruvian art. Located in the Casa Cabrera the collection is spread across 12 levels. There are over 450 artefacts covering Peruvian pottery, ceramics, carvings and jewellery.

Hike the Inca Trail

The Inca trail to Machu Picchu is a gorgeous 4 day hike. The verdant trail will take you across stunning landscapes; it is not for the faint of heart though. Only 500 participants are allowed per trail; which rewards you with sights of other Inca monuments along the way.

The Inca Museum

Located within a gorgeous 16th century colonial mansion the Inca Museum is home to a fabulous collection of artefacts from the Inca Empire. Textiles, silver figurines, pottery, mummies and musical instruments are on display. The outer courtyard is a where you will come across Andean women hard at work weaving traditional textiles.

Pisac

Pisac is a historical district in Cusco. It is also an important archaeological site for Inca artefacts. Enjoy exploring the mysterious Incan construction styles while being surrounded by the beautiful environs of Urubamba Valley.
