City Tour Itinerary
Day 1: Training Day: Cusco – Ollantaytambo – Piscacucho – Yuncaypata
You will have the morning free to rest, shop or do any other personal activities. At 1:00 pm we will meet you in your hotel lobby and commence our tour starting with the Main Plaza of Cusco, also known as Plaza de Armas. Here in this plaza we will also visit the Main Cathedral of Cusco still maintained since the Spanish conquest. We then head to Qoricancha Museum (Temple of the Sun). This museum was an important place of worship to the Sun God for the Incas. When the Spaniards entered the city they ordered to paint all the walls with religious motifs to hide any Inca designs. After Cusco’s 1950 earthquake, the walls in this museum cracked and out came to light those Magnificent Inca representations that were hidden for so long. You will enjoy the great history that is described in this place by our expert Tour Leader. After Qoricancha we head to the 4 most important Archaeological sites within the city of Cusco:
Sacsayhuaman: Site of mysterious stone monuments weighing as much as 200 tons! This place is thought to be a fortress in the Inca capital of Cusco. After viewing all the stone structures you will appreciate the strength of this grandiose place.
Tambomachay: Site that was destined as a water sanctuary. You will observe great structures composed of aqueducts, channels, and several waterfalls.
Puca Pucara: Place that stands out because in Incan times it functioned as a military construction site.
Kenko: Site that is presumed to be one of the most important sanctuaries of the Inca.
Your Tour Leader will give you a thorough explanation of all sites visited and answer any questions you may have. After visiting all the sites stated we will transfer you back to your hotel at approximately 6 pm. If time permits you to, we highly suggest you visit the Sacred Valley of the Incas. It is a full 1-day tour. In the end, you will be in awe of the sites visited. Come with TLP Adventure and visit more of Cusco’s wonders!
