When the Spanish arrived to conquer ancient Peru, they could not have imagined what they would find in
Today, the majestic history and beauty of this ancient city is admired by everyone who visits
Cuzco. Everywhere you look – the streets, the mansions, and churches – are all intricate parts of the customs and history of this city.
To arrive in this city and walk its streets is to transport yourself into the past. This goes beyond just what you can see, and indeed it is something in the atmosphere that offers unique experiences, surprises, fascination, and ultimately respect. Despite modernization and progress, Cusqueñans still follow and observe their ancient customs and traditions.
Amongst the pre-Columbian monuments that still survive in this once imperial city, you can still find part of the original Korichanca, the Incan Temple of the Sun, just 2 blocks from the Plaza de Armas. And, in the Plaza de Armas, the Amaru Cancha and the palace of Inca Huayna Capac once stood on the ground that is today occupied by the Church of the Compañia de Jesus. As well, where the Cathredral Basilica stands today, was once the site of Kiswarcancha, Inca Wiracocha’s palace; the present day Portal Panes was the castle of Inca Pachacutec and Qora Qora, the home of Sinchi Roca; and there was also Hatun Cacha where Inca Tupac Yupanqui lived.
