Cusco - the former capital of the Inca Empire- carries the title of the Archeological Capital of America with pride. Cusco, literally means "navel" in the local Quechua language, and it certainly still fits this description today, as it is at the center of Andean culture. It is the gateway city to the Andes, from where you can easily visit countless sites such as the famous Machu Picchu, one of the most fascinating lost cities in the world. There is no other place in the whole continent where you can easily reach ruins of such an amazing culture which are still in a good condition. The contrast between autochthon and western, history and present, gives Cusco – the former capital of the Inca Empire its special beauty and charm, making it one of the most popular travel hubs of Latin America. Full of life, colors, typical images but also bars, museums, restaurants and cobbled stoned streets with small shops and friendly people this is a great travel destination you will most certainly enjoy!
