THE CUSCO CITY TOUR ITINERARY
Cusco City Tour half day begins when we pick you up from your hotel at 1:00 pm. In our private transport we will head towards the nearest Incan attractions. This excursion includes sites in the city of Cusco and a little outside of it. Our Cusco tour itinerary will include the ruins Sacsayhuaman, Q’enqo, Puca Pucara and Tambomachay. We will visit five Incan archaeological sites over this five-hour morning or afternoon tour.
We begin with one of the most important temples, Qoricancha, which means “gold enclosure”. That’s because the Incas originally covered its stone walls with solid sheets of gold. They dedicated the Qoricancha temple to the worship of the Sun god, one of the primary deities of Inca cosmology.
Then we’ll travel up the hill to Sacsayhuaman (“Satisfied Falcon”), one of the most astonishing monuments built by the Incas. The site is a brilliant architectural feat even now after the Spanish significantly dismantled it to build colonial Cusco. You can still imagine its full glory from the grandeur of its walls, with large stone of over 120 tons.
Next, we’ll visit the Incan complex of Qenqo (“Zigzag”) which displays many symbolic carvings of Inca gods and animals. Nowadays Cusco city tour doesn’t allow travelers to see the puma, condor and snakes sculpted on the rock. However, inside the rock there are several caves and passageways to explore. There is also an altar which was used for mummification process and llamas sacrifices.
Then comes Puca Pucara (Fortress), a small site used as a control point and resting place for important Inca people.
The last stop of Cusco city tour half day is Tambomachay (Lodging Place), which was built to worship water. We will end Cusco tour at your hotel.
