The city tour begins with the pick-up from your respective hotel in the morning or afternoon, then we go to the great temple of the sun, known as the Qoricancha or Recinto de Oro. The Qoricancha is located in Cusco, a few meters from the Plaza de Armas. This marvelous temple is considered one of the most sacred and impressive constructions the Inca lords had. It is said that the temple housed a large select group of Inca priests in charge of worshiping the moon and the sun god. It is said that when the conquerors arrived at the Qoricancha, the walls were covered in solid gold, and there were so many ornaments and jewels made of gold that it took them weeks to melt all the gold to send it to Spain.
Then we go to the ruins of Sacsayhuaman, an imposing Inca construction, located north of the city. Sacsayhuaman is one of the most significant archaeological legacies Cusco has, due to its enormous construction, made up of enormous stone blocks. It is said that the construction of Sacsayhuaman lasted more than 50 years; more than 20,000 people were used in the building. Later we will continue with our tour, and we will go to the ruins of Q’enqo, cold caves carved by the Incas where you can see a small altar where it is believed the Incas mummified their dead.
Then we will visit the ruins of Tambomachay, a beautiful place where water emerges from a hill towards some sources built by the Incas; it is said that the Inca emperor came here to take his baths and perform religious cults to the water.
