CUSCO GENERAL INFORMATION
Located in the south-eastern part of the Andes, Cuzco is Peru's main
tourist destination and one of the most important in the Americas.
Known by the Incas as the "home of gods", Cuzco became the capital
of one of the largest pre-Columbian empires: the Tawantinsuyo. Its
name in Quechua, Qosqo means "Navel of the world", which derives
from when the city served as a hub for a vast network of roads
interconnecting virtually the whole of South America, from the
southern part of present-day Colombia to the northern part of what
is now Argentina.Furthermore, Cuzco is also both a mestizo and
colonial city, with splendid churches and manors built on
foundations of elaborately carved stone.
The local cuisine is also
something for the traveler to look forward to, including superb
combinations of typical Andean foods, such as corn, potatoes and
chilli pepper, with pork and mutton introduced by the Spanish. With
its vast landscapes, rich history and fascinating geography, Cuzco
is, without a doubt, something all travelers long to experienceSome
