Cusco City Tour Half Day


Visit : Sacsayhuaman, el Coricancha, Qenqo, Puca Pucara y Tambomachay.

Cusco is recognized as the ‘Archaeological Capital of America’,  The ancient capital of the Incas, is a place full of archaeological sites, museums, temples and more. There you can see the fortress of Sacsayhuaman, el Coricancha, Qenqo, Puca Pucara y Tambomachay. Although it’s possible to visit these places on your own, the best way is to do it with the ‘City Tour Cusco’.

Itinerario

On the first day upon arrival it is recommended to do the City Tour, our agency organizes this tour every morning. They are picked up from their hotel starting at 9:00 a.m. You’ll have a guided tour through the center of the city of Cusco, you will visit the Plaza de Armas, the Cathedral, the Temple of the Sun Qoricancha-Santo Domingo, and then go out to the surroundings to visit the ruins of Sacsayhuamán, Qenqo, Puka Pukara y Tambomachay, returning to the city between 1:30 p.m. and 14:00 hrs.

City tour: The Cathedral of Cusco

We start the excursion visiting the Cathedral of Cusco, the Church of the Sagrada Familia, and the Church of Triumph

City tour: Qoricancha

Then we visit the Qoricancha temple, the highest expression of Inca architecture and engineering. The Temple of the Sun or Qoricancha, is also currently the Convent of Santo Domingo.

City tour: Sacsayhuamán

The impressive fortress of Sacsayhuamán is strategically built on a hill from where you can see all of Cusco. It’s famous for its huge carved stones, some of which are 9 meters or 30 feet high and weigh more than 350 tons.

City tour: Q’enqo

Located 4 kms northeast of the city of Cusco, it has the archaeological groups of Q’enqo Grande and Q’enqo Chico.

Etymologically, it means labyrinth or zigzag, it fulfilled a purely religious function, being in the outer part a semicircular amphitheater with trapezoidal niches and a monolith that simulates being a puma which measures approximately six meters.

City tour: Puka pukara

Puka pukara means “red fortress”, because the calcareous stones with which it is built have acquired the reddish coloration of the land, very abundant in iron. It’s alleged that it had the function of protecting Tambomachay, an important palace in the Incario. But that in turn, due to its architectural layout and the existence of fountains, aqueducts and multiple enclosures, it was a “tambo”, that is a collective hostel that offered inn and food to travelers, as well as to the delegation that had to accompany the Inca in his retreat in Tambomachay.

City tour: Tambomachay

Tambomachay is located about 8 kms. north of Cusco and very close to the ruins of Puka Pukara, it’s an archaeological site that was destined to the cult of water and so that the head of the Inca Empire could rest. This place is also called Baños del Inca. It consists of a series of aqueducts, channels and several waterfalls that run through the rocks. The surprising thing about this is that from a main waterfall, the Incas created 2 secondary waterfalls, which are exactly the same. That is, if one places two empty bottles, one in each cascade, the 2 are filled at the same time.
