This fabuolous half day tour takes you around all the most important sites of Cusco. Including visits to Cusco's Cathedral, the Temple of the Sun (Qoricancha) and the various Inca sites found outside of the city you get to see an incredible mixture of Inca and Spanish-style and in the case of Qoricancha, the two combined. Cusco is truly a fascinating place to visit; providing a blend of the two cultures (Inca and Spanish).
We will meet in your Hotel at 13:40 to begin this city tour. From here we will go to the Convent of Santo Domingo - Qoricancha, where you will appreciate the contrast between the Inca culture and Catholicism, in this place we will immediately observe the different construction methods of the time. The construction incaica was incredible, Qoricancha was a religious center since it owned many divinities to the interior and as main deity was the God of the Sun (Inti). Also in the place you can see different colonial paintings of the time.
After the visit our group will take the tourist bus to leave the outskirts of the city. Sacsayhuaman is our next stop. A majestic Inca site, with its lithic and enigmatic monoliths can weigh up to 200 tons. Your guide will offer you an explanation of this phenomenal site and you will have free time to explore on your own the strength of Sacsayhuaman.
From Sacsayhuaman to Q'enqo it is 5 minutes by bus, another inca site with its fascinating Inca altars. Q'enqo was a center possibly for ceremonial purposes of sacrifice of some camelids, although others mention that in their inner altar they embalmed their dead. Of particular interest are its semicircular amphitheater and its underground galleries.
We continue to Puca Pucara a small Inca building, a red fortress that is presumed to have been used as a watchtower. This fortress is composed of large walls, terraces and stairways and was part of the defensive set of Cusco in particular and the Inca Empire in general. The last stop on our tour is Tambomachay, a temple of water worship. It is also known as the royal baths of the Inca, with its impressive water sources. Tambomachay consists of a series of aqueducts, canals and several waterfalls that run along the rocks.
