The beautiful city of Cusco was built on the foundations of the Inca, that makes it a city with a hybrid character, full of fascination and mystery. Peru is dotted with Inca sites, but none as famous as the “lost city” of Machu Picchu, considered the seventh wonder of the modern world.
But in addition, this area of Peru (Cusco Region) has also been blessed with natural gifts: a part of the cloud forest Amazon jungle falls within the limits of Cusco, and visitors can walk not only through the Inca past of this city, but also through part of the cloud forest, the Andes mountains and deeply valleys full of traditions and an admirable nature.
