Destination

Cusco is a city situated within the Peruvian Andes. It was the historic capital of the Inca Empire from the 13th-16th centuries, ending with the Spanish conquest. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the city contains an abundance of Spanish architecture from the days of early colonialization. Its charms are such that some 2 million people visit the city each year.

The ruins of Machu Picchu perch on a mountain ridge above the Sacred Valley in the Urubamba Province of Peru. Built in the 15th century, Machu Picchu’s exact use remains a mystery, but most archaeologists believe it was built as an estate for the Incan emperor Pachacuti. More than 200 structures were built here, cleverly constructed to prevent damage from earthquakes and heavy rainfall.
