Cuzco/Cusco (Peru) Travel Directory

Cuzco/Cusco (Peru) Travel Directory

The big city located relatively close to Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley of the Incas.

Cuzco (sometimes called Cusco) is at an altitude of over 3.300 m and has a population of over 350.000 people. Has an airport too, therefore it's easily approachable.

The city itself is home to several museums and there are several important archeological sites close to it. Perhaps the most important one is that of Sacsayhuamán.

Cuzco used to be the capital of the Inca Empire, but it was conquered by the Spanish conquistadores.

Travelers who go hiking on the famous Inca Trail and visit Machu Picchu usually use Cuzco as their starting point. There are good rail connections with nearby places. With train you can get to Machu Picchu Pueblo (formerly called Aguas Calientes), Ollantaytambo, if you go north. If you choose to travel to the south, then you can reach Puno, which is near Lake Titicaca.
