Top Reasons to Go
Alpaca Clothing: Nothing says "Cusco" quite like a sweater, shawl, poncho, or scarf woven from the hair of the alpaca.
Andean Cuisine: Where else in the world will you find roasted cuy (guinea pig) and alpaca steaks rubbing shoulders on fine-dining menus?
Inca Architecture: Wonder at the ability of the Inca to construct stone walls so precisely, using 15th-century technology, and to position a temple so it would be illuminated best at the exact moment of the solstice.
Layered Religion: Take a closer look at the walls—every Catholic church was built on the site, and often the foundation, of an Inca huaca, or sacred place.
Hotels with History: Many Cusco hotels are former convents, monasteries, dwellings of sacred women, or palaces of Spanish conquerors.
Sacred Playground: The Sacred Valley is an adventurer's playground for hiking, biking, rafting, and even stand-up paddleboarding.
