  • It's an interesting mainly for the Inca architecture well preserved. Easy location. Rico Interior.

  • What stands out from this building, and what makes it more famous, are mostly the thick exterior walls with huge carved stones forming something complicated figures see. A good example of imperial inca architecture transformed into a Palace by the Spaniards.

Where to stay in Cusco

One of Peru's most visited cities, Cusco boasts lodgings suitable for every traveler's needs. Scores of hotels ensure plenty of comfortable rooms for tourists coming to explore the nearby archeological sites. Despite the abundance of hotels, room rates remain among the highest in the country, especially during peak season (June to mid-September).
