    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Sacsayhuaman, Cusco 08000 Peru

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Iglesia De Santo Domingo, Ahuacpinta 659-A, Cusco Peru

    The Temple of Qorikancha was probably the most important and sacred temple of the Incas, not only for worshipping the Sun deity “Inti”, but for being the only temple that devoted itself entirely to worship ceremonies; there was never evidence of households in this area. Most chronicles agree on the description of the majesty of the Qorikancha temple, its walls made of calcite and andesite stone have a perfect finish and prevail over time, despite having endured 3 earthquakes (1650, 1749 y 1950)

    Duration: 45 minutes

    This fort is made of large walls, terraces, and staircases and was part of defense of Cusco in particular and the Inca Empire in general.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Tambomachay, Cusco Peru

    It consists of a series of aqueducts, canals and waterfalls that run through the terraced rocks. The function of the site is uncertain: it may have served as a military outpost guarding the approaches to Cusco, as a spa resort for the Incan political elite, or both.

    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: Q'enqo, Cusco Peru

    Although the original name of this sanctuary is not known, the Spanish conquerors decided to name the K'enko Quechua word that means "labyrinth" is called the Socorro hill and covers an area of ​​just over 3,500 meters cuadradosacaso the labyrinthine underground galleries or small channels carved on rocks.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Mercado Central de San Pedro, Tupac Amaru, Cusco 08003 Peru

    Hidden among the aisles of the Mercado de San Pedro (in the fruit section) you can find stands with exotic products brought from the Amazon, tinctures of herbs, and unguents based on the tallow of certain animals. Here you can buy coca leaves and prepare your own tea; mate de coca is one of the best natural remedies to combat altitude sickness. There is a row dedicated to chocolate, here you can find a mixture of delicious chocolate, coca leaves and mint (very delicious). It is not at all unusual for people coming from nearby provinces to come with typical costumes, carrying their babies on their backs in typical blankets, from which it would seem they would fall, but you will see that this is not the case.

    Duration: 30 minutes
