The Best Travel Guide To Cusco

Cusco is a city in south-eastern Peru. It is the capital of the region with the same name as well as the Cuzco Province. Cusco is a major tourist destination as it was the site of the historic capital of the Inca Empire, and the city has been designated a World Heritage Site. Peru has named the city its historical capital owing to this reason. The pre-Inca Killke culture founded the city in the 11th century, and built the walled complex known as the Saksaywaman, which the Incas built upon. Spanish explorers sacked the Inca city in the 16th century, leaving very little of value behind. Several Spanish Colonial buildings such as the Cathedral of Santo Domingo, Cusco remain.
