Why Fly to Cusco?

The city of Cusco, which lies nearly 11,000 feet above sea level, was once capital of the Incan empire before Spanish settlers invaded the land nearly 500 years ago. Today, the area is still a place of pride for the indigenous Quechua people, and visitors have the pleasure of experiencing this unique and fascinating culture firsthand. Walk down the city’s streets and see the history of European imperialism unfold with Spanish-style buildings erected literally on top of walls built by the Incas. Ruins are a big attraction, especially Machu Pichu, which is located 50 miles northwest of the Cusco. In addition to taking in the city’s history, there are plenty of restaurants, bars and nightspots to keep travelers entertained as well.

Quick Travel Guide to Cusco

Walk out of your Cusco hotel room and be thrust into a city that feels preserved in time. Stroll down the cobblestone streets and venture toward the Plaza de Armas, the city’s main square. Here you can snap pictures of the Church of La Compania, an ornate 17th-century Jesuit church, and the Cusco Cathedral, a Gothic-Renaissance-style cathedral that sits on the site of an Incan temple. There are also a number of shops, restaurants and bars in the area that you can explore as well.

 

Hit up Plaza de San Francisco, another popular town square, that is home to some of the city’s best coffee shops. Then explore the many museums of Cusco, including the Museum of Pre-Columbia Art, which showcase a large collection of ceramics and carvings. Head over to Incan Museum and see the institution’s collection of mummies, indigenous art and cultural exhibits.

 

Of course, no trip to Cusco would be complete without an excursion to Machu Pichu. These ruins, which date back to the 15th century, are located nearly 8,000 feet above sea level. Untouched by Spanish conquistadors, the site serves as one of the most well preserved relics of the Incan people.
