Capital of the Inca Empire for three centuries, World Heritage-listed Cusco is now a major tourist destination, drawing nearly 2 million annual tourists with its well-preserved colonial architecture and proximity to Machu Picchu.
Step out of Cusco to go to Pisac and see Pisac, which is approximately 1h 10 min away. Next up on the itinerary: explore the ancient world of Sacsayhuaman, contemplate the long history of Plaza de Armas, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Catedral del Cuzco o Catedral Basilica de la Virgen de la Asuncion, and pause for some serene contemplation at The Company of Jesus Church.
