Cuzco Peru

Home >> Peru Home Page >> Peru Cities

This colorful, picturesque town was once the center of the Inca Empire, and with almost 300,000 residents it remains an important city. Although Cuzco was heavily damaged by the Spaniards (whose architectural legacy is obvious), the Inca city is still very much in evidence. Walls, doorways, foundations, arches, and even decorative stonework are found throughout the city, incorporated into newer structures like fragments of a broken mosaic. Cuzco also contains some more extensive Inca ruins, including the Temples of the Sun and the Moon. The city is also the acclimatization point for the celebrated high altitude trek along the trail of the Incas.
