Free walking tour in Cusco - Best places to visit
Cusco is one of Peru's largest cities, located in the eastern part of the Andes mountain range, on the banks of the Huatanay River. In addition, according to the Peruvian Constitution, it is considered as the historic capital, before Lima, because it was the main site of the Tahuantinsuyo Empire and had an enormous cultural and architectural legacy. On the outskirts of the city lies the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, as well as other nearby towns that all have great cultural value.
On a pay-what-you-please walking tour of Cusco you can see the main monuments and landmarks with a local guide who will show you the hidden charms of Peruvian culture. Among the many places to check out, these are the essential places you should visit: Plaza de Armas, San Blas neighborhood, Qorikancha and the Convent of Santo Domingo, Sacsayhuamán. Don’t forget about visiting, Loreto Street and the 12 angled Stone, San Pedro’s Market, the Tambomachay, Pukapukara, Qenqo and the White Christ, the Sacred Valley or Rainbow Mountain to have an unforgettable trip.
