This city is located in the southeast part of Peru, near the Andes. It is considered the historic capital.
It was the capital of the Inca Empire and is considered World Heritage by UNESCO, currently one of the most important tourist destinations in Peru.
For this reason, many buildings and streets of pre-Columbian times are found, as well as colonial buildings.
Among its most important historical buildings we can fail to mention the church and convent of La Merced, Plaza de Armas, the Cathedral, the church Iglesia de la Compañia, among others, built in colonial times by the Incas.
Around Cusco lies the Sacred Valley of the Incas, where we find impressive forts that include Sacsayhuaman and of course the citadel of Machu Picchu, the most important Historic Sanctuary of the Inca legacy.
In terms of geography, it is located in the middle of the hills, with a dry, temperate climate, with two distinct seasons: dry and wet. The average temperature is 13° C and the wind chill is rather cold, with icy mountain winds.
