    Drove past this location while on a city tour and did a walk alone inside the fortress{ remains. I reckon it would have been much wider if I would have had a guide to indicate and explain about different areas. It is quite massive and the stone work in impressive.

    The centre of Cusco is lovely - magnificent buildings, fascinating history, clean and safe. So much to see, try and do. Definitely worth wandering through; or with a guide to really bring it to life.

    Spent many hours here. All different types of restaurants and things to buy. For better prices go to San Pedro's market a few minutes from the Plaza.

    You need to be in form to climb all the way there, but worth it. It is a beautiful tour in Cusco and kind of a loop from the center and coming back from the other side.

    This market is pretty big to me in that vendors are spilling outside the physical structure of the market. There are many things to buy here including juice, clothing and food to name a few. I highly recommend coming here.

    It is highly recommended to go to the Qorikancha or gold enclosure where the convent of Santo Domingo is now located. The Qoricancha, was also the most important temple of the entire Inca Empire,

    Great Architecture and Water System. According to history the two brothers of Incas were at loggerheads. The father wanted the sons to make peace. So one son went to meet the other and was ambushed (at the behest of the father). But he prevailed and killed his half-brother(?) and was forced to arrest and exile his father here. I could not find reference to this but this is what the guide told me. A beautiful palace with irrigation systems was built. There are two sources of water with exclusive hydraulic engineering. One source comes from the mountains and one from a natural spring. The spring is providing water at 50 liters per second. Stepped terraces are available but the guide told me it was most likely that only garden flowers were grown. I did see a place for food storage. I did it trek further up due to lack of time .

    The tour guides truly made the experience personal and unique. Bring a jacket and hat as it gets cold both inside the building as well as part of the exhibit is outside. If you make a reservation ahead of time you get picked up from town center and dropped off . Staff was super nice accommodating me last minute but reservations are required.

    Excellent treatment, the people in charge explain how they make the bridge. You can also find food and hostels. The price is 10 soles. The charge is necessary to maintain the bridge.

    I am glad we went, but after visiting the Cusco Cathedral, it seems a little under - whelming. You can't take photos of the tapestries, but photos are allowed in other parts.

    The title says it all. I found it casually on Google maps when I was looking for places to visit and this one popped up. After knowing the history it does sound interesting. Cool place to snap a picture but i have no idea what people mean by puma and snake. I didn’t see either.

    In centre of Cusco Town Square is the great statute and a photo with same is a must. The scenery behind the statute in most directions are great to include in your photo.
