Ecela - Cusco, Peru

cusco.jpgCusco, at an elevation of 3,416 meters (1,1207 Feet), is located  in the heart of the Peruvian Andes. It is the capital of the Inca  empire and offers many tourist attractions. The Plaza de Armas  is the city center, and there you will find La Catedral (Cathedral)  and the San Francisco Church. You can also visit the Temple of  the Sun (Coricancha) and the White Christ, a statue of Jesus  towering over the city.

In the area surrounding Cusco are the ruins of the Sacred  Valley, architectural wonders not to be missed.
The most important attraction is Machu Picchu, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This Inca city can be reached by train and during the trip you can take in the beautiful Andean landscape. It can also be reached by hiking the Inca trail!

ACTIVITIES
During the week you can explore the narrow streets and diverse  museums and witness local cultural events. You can also try some  delicious Peruvian cuisine! On weekends you can visit the  monuments and tourist attractions around Cusco. In the Sacred  Valley lies the city of Pisaq and its craft market as well as the ruins  of Chinchero and Ollantaytambo, examples of Incan urban planning.  If you're an adventurous nature lover, you can take a trip to Manu  National Park or Pongo de Mainique in the jungle.
Tip: Before you go to Machu Picchu, you should stay in and around Cusco for a few days. Being that both Cusco and Machu Picchu are at very high altitudes, your body will need some time to adjust. One remedy is to drink coca tea, a local drink.
