After lunch, at 1:00 pm, we will pick you up at your hotel to begin the city tour. Visiting first:

Qorikancha (The Golden Enclosure): A temple originally built by the Incas and later transformed into a Catholic church. Here, you’ll find impressive stone walls and artifacts from centuries ago. 

After a 40-minute stay, we will walk 15 minutes to the Cathedral of the Virgen of Asunción. 

The cathedral, whose construction began in 1560, was built on top of the Inca Wiracocha palace. This colonial monument is a marvel that expresses colonial architecture and its religious art, showing approximately 300 paintings from the Cusqueñan School painters.

Afterwards, we will continue our excursion by riding our own vehicle on a 20-minute ride to the archaeological site of Sacsayhuaman.

Sacsayhuaman: impressive construction built on megalithic engraved stones. Its architecture reflects the value and importance it had during Inca times. After a 15-minute ride, we will visit Qenqo. 

Qenqo means labyrinth. It was used as an Inca adoration center for offerings and sacrifices. Then, we will visit

Puca Pucara (reddish fort): used as a fort. Its name is the result of the amount of iron on its land, which gives it a reddish color. We will then head towards the following destination, Tambomachay.

Tambomachay (Temple of Water): adoration center for the cult of water. We will finally return to the city of Cusco, with an impressive panoramic view along the way and a detailed view of the city of Cusco.
