À propos de la ville
Cuzco, située dans les Sierras du Sud, est l'une des villes les plus visitées du Pérou. C'était autrefois la capitale de la dynastie Inca et maintenant c'est la porte d'entrée de la Vallée Sacrée et la capitale andine du Pérou. Cuzco respire le charme et la splendeur et a beaucoup de caractère. Le cœur de Cuzco est la Plaza de Armas où se trouvent la cathédrale et l'église Compañía de Jesús, parmi d'autres bâtiments remarquables. L'architecture de la ville est un mélange curieux de colonial espagnol construit sur les ruines incas et tout le reste est un mélange unique d'influences espagnoles et indigènes. Explorer les rues pittoresques, étroites et pavées de Cuzco est une source de fascination sans fin. Cuzco est un lien constant avec le passé, ses rues regorgent de costumes colorés, de boutiques d’artisanat, de remarquables ruines incas et le flair local est omniprésent. Hatunrumiyoc est situé à proximité de la Plaza de Nazarenas, non loin de la Plaza de Armas. C'est une rue piétonne étroite, célèbre pour ses murs incas où d'énormes pierres sont précisément taillées pour s'assembler sans boue ni béton. Vous trouverez le chef-d’œuvre, une pierre à 12 angles, à mi-chemin dans la rue. Cuzco est la ville la plus pratique pour visiter le Machu Picchu, la vallée sacrée des Incas et d’autres sites incas de la région. L'architecture fantastique de la ville et son environnement naturel à couper le souffle font de Cusco une ville difficile à quitter.
