City Breaks to Cusco
A visit to the fascinating Peruvian city of Cusco is an experience you will never forget. You will see evidence of Cusco’s rich history that includes evidence of the Killke, the Inca Empire and what happened to Cusco after the Spanish invasion. Cusco’s city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and still has many streets, buildings and plazas from pre-Columbian times. The Barrio de San Blas, with its many craft shops and artisans, is particularly beautiful. Calle Hatun Rumiyuq, where the Inca Roca was later converted to the Archbishop’s residence, is also a must-see for tourists. City breaks in Cusco will surely include many incredible archeological sites and historical cathedrals. Food plays an important part in Cusco’s history and visitors will enjoy the city’s new fusion and neo-Andean restaurants. There is also ChocoMuseo, a chocolate and cacao museum, in the city’s centre.
