Many things to see in the Centro. We did a tour of the church, which was very interesting. We did a 5 hour tour of Cusco and really enjoyed it. Recommend the bus tours.

The town is a combination of Incan and Spanish colonial architecture, which is both interesting and beautiful to see. They’ve retained a lot of the original buildings and haven’t allowed companies to modify the exterior of the buildings they occupy. For example, McDonalds is located...More
