To start the Cusco City Tour we will first pick you up at your hotel and then direct ourselves at the cathedral, which is the most important religious building of Cusco. This place was designed in a form of a Latin cross, at its base, and is adorned with a Renaissance facade. Inside, also in Renaissance style, are the best works of colonial goldsmiths cut in cedar and alder wood, as well as a valuable collection of paintings from the Cusco School. At his side are two auxiliary chapels: El Triunfo and Jesus Maria and José.
Later, we will also visit the Koricancha where you can enjoy the fusion of the Inca and Spanish cultures. At the base of what was the Temple of the Sun, the Santo Domingo Church and Convent were built.
The temple is a symbol of western imposition, an example of the coexistence of the native past and European architecture. Finally, we will finish our tour by visiting the archaeological sites around Cusco: Saqsayhuaman, Qenqo, Pukapukara and Tambomachay. Then, we will take you back to your hotel.
