Callejon de Loreto (or Intik'ijllu) is a small and short pedestrian street lined with high Inca walls on both sides. It is completely straight and worked in gorgeous stone. It runs south-east off Plaza de Armas and is parallel to Avenue El Sol. It takes only a few minutes to walk and is an extraordinary piece of history. It's not... More

So in the first passing on the way to the hotel we did not really take in just what we were walking through. A day later when going to the temple of the sun we checked it out again...what a shame the stones could not be where they should be,well, that could be said for many taken from the "Sexywoman"...

Bit difficult to find and even when you're walking down it you don't realize how special the place is. Beautiful spot, amazing design and so much history. Worth tracking it down!

There are so many people walking from Plaza De Armas to other areas, you barely notice you are walking down a historic walkway. The Incas were excellent architects and the foundations they built are some of the best in the world. The stones are smooth and perfectly cut. Pays to look around. (To Travel Is To Live)

The best example Inca stonework in Cusco. This little pedestrian walkway is lined with high Inca walls which tower above you on both sides. It starts just to the left of the Compania Church on Plaza de Armas. This makes the perfect short cut to Qorikancha, the most important Inca structure in Cusco. Note - the street is called Intik'ijllu... More

This street is a classic illustration of Inka walls on both sides. The Compania (Jesuit church) is built over one side, but many of the orginal stones remain. This is certainly worth a stoll.

I love this street, by night or day, with the magnificent inca walls at your right and at your left. Sometimes musicians are playing their flutes while you walk by. Maybe the smell is not that nice at some parts but just walking by feels so nice that it really does not matters. Maybe one the few Inca streets in... More
