This is one of a few old passageways where you can imagine yourself back in the time of the Incas and beyond when walls we re carefully made to last!

On each side you will notice the different of Inca architecture in different time!! You can notice the different of the stone used. There are local people dress up as Inka or local women carry baby alpaca waiting to take photos with you at cost of 1 Sol

One of the best places in Cuzco to take pictures of Inca stone work. Also some great street stands for local food after dark.

Very unique place. On the one side, you can see the inka walls. On the other side, there is spanish wall. Each has different taste. Also, along the way, you can see some alpacas and llamas.

We though that everything of the inca constructions were destroy by the Europeans, but walking by this street we could revive a history of the incas. It is a very easy and nice walk taking you to the main square in Cuzco. If you have a day free to explore the city, don't miss this street.

It's a fairly ordinary street in Cusco, lined with Inca walls. Coffee shops is are around this area, good to pay a visit on a very chilly morning.

in this alley the inkas built very antiseismic walls that even today survived earthquakes, instead the spanish buildings made of bricks and mortar fell down to the ground even at the slightest tremor.

Unless you are right there and walking through those stone lined streets, you won’t realize that you are walking through the history. The streets are beautiful and the views and the whole layout is elegant and apart from touching upon the incan history, these streets also offer a good insight into the Peruvian lifestyle.

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
