    Cuzco (or Cusco) is the oldest city of South America still alive where people conserve the official language of the Incas.

    Formerly named Cuzco by Spanish Conquistadors, the name originates from the Quechua the phrase 'qusqu wanka' ('Rock of the owl').

    This well-preserved historic capital of the Inca empire is where you'll find sacred sites, temples and huge fortresses. Cuzco was the epicenter of Inca ceremonies and also the launching pad for Spanish colonization and the spread of Christianity throughout the Andean world. This is evidenced by a proliferation of colonial christian churches, convents, monasteries and cathedrals - largley built atop former Inca sites.

    Today, Cuzco is a World Heritage site declared by Unesco and the major tourist destination in South America. Tourists come from all over the world to visit Cuzco and surrounding sites like Machu Piccu, Sacsayhuanman, Qenko, Puca Pucara and Tambo Machay. Popular activities among tourists include trekking, rafting, bird watching, culinary tours, shamanic ceremonies and shopping for arts hand-crafted from gold, silver, textile, ceramic.

    Qoricancha: One of the most regarded churches in the city, the "gold room" was a sacred place where one could worship "Inti", the most revered Inca god. Entered only by fasting, barefoot and with a load on back as a sign of humility.

    Sacsayhuaman: on of the most amazing Incan constructions and especially regarded by tourists, according to the latest hypothesis says it was an important ceremonial center and not a fortress as was previously though. A massive and spectacular building built with enormous carved rocks with incredible precision. Along with Machu Picchu and Choquequirao, Sacsayhuaman is without doubht one of the greatest architectural works of Tahuantinsuyo. It's Quechua name means "satisfied falcon".
