Cuzco has experienced many transformations throughout its long history, but what makes this place so extraordinary is its unique ability to retain the cultural essence of each historic period. First developed by the Killke people, who inhabited the area before the arrival of the Incas in the 13th century, Cuzco was to become the epicenter for the entire Incan civilization, which included most of western South America. Unfortunately for the Incas, the arrival of the Spaniards in 1533 signaled the beginning of the end for the empire, but fortunately for us, many of the most stunning Incan structures have survived making Cuzco the archaeological capital of the Americas and Peru`s most popular travel destination.

The gateway to the Sacred Valley, and the splendid lost city of Machu Picchu, Cuzco has a seemingly endless array of historic attractions from the pre-Colombian, and Colonial eras, some with influences of both periods. In fact, the Incas were such masterful builders and architects, that the Spanish frequently utilized sections of Incan structures for their Churches, and Cathedrals, like the Convent of Santo Domingo, which was built on the foundation of the Coricancha, a sanctuary dedicated to the Incan sun god. Other popular Colonial sites include the Church of la Merced, Cathedral of Santo Domingo, Plaza de Armas, and the Parish Church, the oldest in Cuzco.
