Know More about this tour
In addition to a wonderful view over Cusco, UNESCO World Heritage-listed Sacsayhuaman boasts massive stones measuring up to 13 feet (4 meters) tall placed tightly together, creating a fortress-like structure. As you walk around with your guide, learn about the site's history and defensive purpose. Marvel at the way the Incans built the site so soundly, and admire the different shapes and sizes of the stones, some of which have designs of the condor, puma and snake, symbols of the three Incan worlds.
Hop back on your coach and head to Qenqo (or Kenko), where youll see the ancient temple of Puma and its sacrificial altar, and then continue to Puca Pucara, a site of military ruins that was once used for defense of the Inca Empire. Next visit the archaeological site of Tambomachay, where a series of aqueducts, canals and waterfalls may have been a spa resort of wealthy Incans, followed by a stop at the Temple of the Sun (Korikancha), one of the Incas most important temples, on top of which sits the Convent of Santo Domingo.
When your tour of Cuscos surrounding sites is over, head back to the city, where youll visit its main square the beautiful Plaza de Armas. Here youll see two striking churches Cusco Cathedral (also known as the Cathedral of Santo Domingo) and the Iglesia de La Compaa de Jesus (the Church of the Society of Jesus).
Tour Cusco Cathedral with your guide, learning about its rich history and admiring its exquisite late-Gothic and Baroque architecture. See some of its renowned art, including Pintura Senor de los Temblores, the oldest surviving painting in Cusco.
Youll then be returned to your Cusco hotel.
