About this activity
Starting your tour at 1:30pm you will get to know the "Must Sees" of Cusco.
Explore the Qorikancha or Sun Temple, now referred to as Santo Domingo Church. The curved stonework of the temple is probably unequalled in the world which probably was covered with gold during the Inca period. Then, visit the impressive archaeological sites around the city: Saqsayhuaman, an Inca complex with huge stone constructions, where the Inti Raymi or Festival of the Sun is held every June. Sacsayhuaman has a great cosmic energy – that is why people think it was an astronomic observatory and an Inca oracle. Explore also Q’enqo, a place used for ceremonial purposes, fertility rites and celebrations of the solstice and equinox, then continue to the Red Fortress of Puca-Pucara and Tambomachay, a beautiful fountain fed by a spring forming a series of basins. To complete the tour a visit to the Cathedral of Cusco would let you understand about the sincretism of two different cultures
