I watched women dying yarn in various colors and setting it out to dry. They were weaving murals as guinea pigs ran around the floors and... More

A nice looking colonial-ish, Spanish, Inka, town. With sweet cobble stone streets, nice cafes and restaurants. Lots of pretty and cute things to look at. However it gets very cold in winter. Beware

The square is huge and surrounded by lovely buildings. It's a vibrant place full of locals and tourists so it's a great people-watching place. As in most places, the restaurants on the square will be pricier and touristy-er but there's a lot of choice so you should be able to find something to your liking if you don't feel like... More

We decided to stay 4 nights at Cuzco, since it is a lovely town to have relaxing and culture time an it was worthwhile! With its lovely mood, its architecture and its wonderful cuisine, it is a wonderful place to enjoy vacation.

A walk in the center of Cusco will undoubtedly take you past the most impressive historical buildings. Take some time to walk around and enjoy the sights.

A fascinating site. Over 100 years to complete it using stones that the Spanish salvaged from demolishing Incan buildings and temples and using Incan labour to build it. Beautiful inside as you would expect from an old Catholic Church.
