In this tour you`ll visit the next sites:

The Cathedral:

It was built over the Inca palace of Suntur Wasi. Its construction took almost one century (94 years). Artists from Cusco and Europe worked in its design. The most important spots in this gigantic temple are the chapel of the virgin of the Remedies, the Inmaculada Concepción and others equally impressive. “El Señor de los Temblores”, (Lord of the Earthquakes), regarded as the saint of this city, keeps this name since March 31th in 1,650, date where its image was taken out of the Cathedral to calm down the earthquake.

Qorikancha:

It is situated in the heart of Cusco. Its construction took place when Pachacutec governed the Tawantinsuyu and it became one of the most important temples built by the Incas. This was the house of the bishop who fought against the worship of the Sun. This building was the place where chosen women were sacrificed to the main god, the Sun. According to the Inca cosmology, el Qorikancha was situated in the middle of the world.

Saqsayhuaman:

Is located 2 Km to the north of Cusco. In Inca times, the city of Cusco had the shape of a puma and its head was the Sacsayhuaman site. However, this was destroyed by the Spaniards, but still in these days we can see fabulous cyclopean walls, some of them of 5 meters height and with more than 350 tons weight. This constructions were conducted with the effort of thousands of workers leaded by the Inca Pachacutec.

Qenqo:

It is located 3 Km away from Cusco. The word Qenqo means maze. It was a worshiping place where we can observe a huge rock which has several cuttings, among which the most important was the zigzag, issue of the chicha or blood, by which this vital element flowed. Those stones represented a cougar which woke up with the winter solstice. Underneath the rock there are amazing subterranean corridors.

Pukapukara:

Following the schedule this site is located at 7 Km from Cusco. Pukapukara means “red fortress”. This site was an administrative and military center. In there we can find some aqueducts, short terraces, passages, turrets, and niches.

Tambomachay:

8 Km away from the city of Cusco. Well known as the Inca’s bath, this Inca site was considered a place of cult to the water.
