Do you have a trip to Cusco coming up! Make sure you make the most of your time in the city by participating in the most fun and worthwhile activities.
Here are a few options for you to consider.

Visit Historical Landmarks

Cusco is home to several historic landmarks, the most prominent of which is Machu Picchu. This is an ancient citadel dating back to the 15th century and is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Located in the Andes range, it signifies the Inca aristocracy and is renowned for its architectural style.  

Then there’s the Qoricancha, also known as the Temple of the Sun. This historic temple is a symbol of the Incan and Spanish conquests and influences in the Andean region. Once lined with gold sheets, it currently exists in the form of ruins and is a reminder of the injustices and sufferings of the indigenous communities at the hands of invaders.

The Sacsayhuaman Fortress is another historic site that attracts tourists. It’s considered to be the largest structure that the Incas built, involving more than 20,000 laborers. Incan symbolism is prevalent across the fortress walls and ceilings. 

Try Peruvian Food

You can’t miss out on the delicious Peruvian cuisine while you’re in Cusco! The city has plenty of street vendors, cafes, and restaurants that serve authentic local food.

Take Lomo Saltado, for instance. This Peruvian classic is commonly available throughout Cusco. It comprises beef stir fry that’s served with crispy French fries, hot peppers, rice, and the signature Peruvian hot sauce. Another great option is Aji De Gallina, a chicken dish prepared in a thick, creamy sauce and served with rice and potatoes.

If you want to experience authentic Cusco street food, anticuchos (beef skewers) are yet another popular option.
