Cusco, the navel of the world, is in essence a city full of Inca architecture, which stands out even more for its mix of architectural styles. The arrival of a new world full of art generates a spectacular vision of an Inca-Colonial Cusco. Just five minutes in the Cusco streets, which have been witness to Inca canticles, ancestral processions of mummified ancestors, and fights among the “conquerors," give us a marvelous experience of an incredible mysticism.

Ending the day, how can one say “no” to this constellation of attractions and restaurants, offering both Cusco Novo Andean cooking and a great variety of international dishes.
