Capital of the Incan Empire from the early 14th century until its Spanish conquest, Cusco is still a beautiful city with a magical feel.
Gateway city to the infamous Machu Picchu, the city is situated in a valley of the Andes Mountains with not only historical Incan ruins, but Spanish architecture and wealth.
One cannot visit the Machu Picchu ruins without also visiting all the history and culture that this city has to offer making it the archeological capital of the Americas. Native Incans still inhabit the area speaking their Quechua language and thriving primarily off of agriculture. The cobblestone streets, adobe houses, and open markets add to Cusco's unique charm.
