Location Summary
Cuzco was more than just a capital city, it was an administrative, military and holy city, similar to Mecca, and is now the oldest inhabited city of the Americas. As a result, many splendid styles of architecture are found here, reflecting the diversity of cultural influences on the city.

In Cuzco’s main square there is an array of beautiful, colourful stalls framed by the curious and often charming stone walk ways and streets. Delve a little deeper and you will find beautiful little arcades with craft boutiques selling wares created by local craftsmen.

Due to its position as the capital of the Inca dynasty, contemporary Cuzco - a city 3,300 metres (10,500 feet) above sea level - is a showcase of several different cultures: pre-Inca, Inca, Colonial and Republican.

The surrounding countryside is also stunning, with much of it sculpted by agricultural terraces and once watered by complex irrigation systems.
