The best, ancient heritage
Welcome to the navel of the world. The undisputed archaeological capital of the Americas, Cuzco is the continent’s oldest continuously inhabited city and the gateway to Machu Picchu. Cosmopolitan Cuzco (also Cusco, or Qosq’o in Quechua) thrives with a measure of contradiction. Ornate cathedrals squat over Inca temples, massage hawkers ply the narrow cobblestone passages, a rural Andean woman feeds bottled water to her pet llama while the finest boutiques sell pricey alpaca knits.

Built as a royal estate for the Inca emperor Pachacuti, Machu Picchu is an astounding and perennially Mysterious climax to one of the world most famous journeys: the Inca Trail .Perched high above a sinous bend in the Urubamba River, Machu Picchu has lured, explorers, poets and pilgrims to its mistwreathed ridgetop ever since its discovery by the American explorer Hiram Bingham in july, 1911.
The Manco Inca dynasty resisted the Spanish conquerors during 40 years (1536 to 1572) from this fortress in the vilcabamba area.
The Spanish conquerors were never able to expel them from it. The building of Choquequirao is the work of Inca Pachacutec successors Tupac Inca Yupamqui (1471 to 1493) and Huayna Capac (1493 to 1527). Household and ceremonial pottery has been found here that bears both the classic Cusco style and also from other populations who came to live here to build and permanently populate the area.
Most likely they were experienced farmers who knew how to build and use farming terraces in high Amazon forest areas. Located at 3050 masl on the border with Department of Apurimac, the Choquequirao Archeological compound was not built to be a place of easy access. Reaching it demands two days of disciplined march, largely compensated by the beauty of the landscape that way farers cross from the beginning of their expedition.
