Cusco

Cusco

Cusco was the capital of the Inca empire, and most of Cusco's central strets are lined witn Inca-built stone walls, which now form the foundations of colonial or modern building. The streets are often stepped and narrow and crowded with Quechua speaking descendants of the Incas.

The archaelogical capital of the Americas and the oldest continouly inhabited city on the continent, Cusco is the capital of its department and has 300,000 inhabitants. Because of its central location in the Andes and its proximity to Machu Pichu and the Inca trail, Cusco draws travelers in great numbers and is one of South America's most popular destinations.
