Itinerary

Cusco City Tour: Qoricancha - Saqsayhuaman

inkayni-peru-tours-city-tour-en-cusco-qenqo inkayni-peru-tours-city-tour-en-cusco-tambomachay

Our City Tour in Cusco starts at the Qoricancha, also known as the Temple of the Sun, built by orders of the Inca Pachacutec (1438 – 1572). To clarify, upon the arrival of the Spaniards, it became the base of the convent of Santo Domingo. During the incanato the temple was dedicated to the worship of the sun god (“Inti”).

After that, we will go to Sacsayhuaman, one of the most emblematic places of the Inca Empire (a few minutes from the center of the city called “World Heritage of Humanity” by UNESCO) built by the Inca Pachacuteq in the fifteenth century. Certainly, it is a structure made of huge carved stones, approximately 9 meters high and weighing at least 100 tons. As a result, these are arranged in an organized way and in a perfect position to form three platforms, each one 390 meters long.

Quenqo – Puca Pucara – Tambomachay

Subsequently, we will continue the Cusco city tour with the archaeological park of Qenqo, a center of cults and ceremonies dedicated to Mother Earth. Certainly, history says that this was an amphitheater of cults where the Inca dead were placed for ceremonies, the dead were laid on the trapezoid structures found there.

Our next stop will be Puca Pucara also known as “Red Fort”. Since the stones with which it was built have become this color due to their high iron levels. In addition, other archaeological structures such as aqueducts, enclosures, and fountains can be seen. Because of its proximity to Tambomachay and its characteristics, it is believed that it constituted a strong military defense of this place.

Finally, our last place to visit of the Cusco city tour will be Tambomachay, just 100 meters from Puca Pucara. Likewise, it is made from carved rocks, which form a beautiful set of canals and waterfalls coming from springs. Most importantly, Tambomachay was a place of worship of water.

FAQS?

Money in Peru?

Peru uses the Nuevo Sol (S), which has traded from S3.00 to S3.30 per US dollar (US$) for several years although you should keep an eye on current events.Carrying cash, an ATM card or traveler´s checks, as well as a credit card that can be use for cash advances in case of emergency, is advisable.When receiving local currency, always ask for small bills (billetes pequeños), as S100 bills is hard to change in small towns or for small purchases. Carry as much spare change as posible, especially in small towns.Public bathrooms often charge a small fee for use and getting change for paper can be darn near impossible.The best places to exchange money are normally foreign exchange bureaus (casa de cambio), which are fast, have longer hours and often give slightly better rates than banks.Many places accept US dollars. Do not accept torn money as it will likely not be aceppted by Peruvians. It is best not to change money on the street as counterfeits are a problem.

How is the wheater in Peru?

The weather in Peru is extremely varied depending on the region you visit!

Peru has a wide variety of climates due to its proximity to the equator and tropical influence, along with the towering heights of the Andes Mountains and the strong currents of the Pacific ocean. The country is usually divided into three principal geographic regions.

Coast – The main characteristic of the coast is dryness – it is mostly desert, but a desert with mild temperatures, and plenty of humidity. Light rain is possible a few months of the year, but usually the coast is covered in a heavy fog coming from the sea, which brings plenty of mist onto land and often a chilly sensation. During summer months (Dec-Apr), the fog disappears and temperatures may exceed 30ºC (86º F), especially in the north.

Mountains – The Andes has two well-marked seasons – dry season with its endless sunny days from April to October and wet season between November and March. Day temperatures do not fluctuate much all year, but dry season night temperatures often bring a harsh chill due to frequent frost above 3,500 mts (11,500 ft). Most tourist choose to visit during the dry months. Climate varies greatly depending on altitude. In general, mountain weather is wild and unpredictable any time of the year!

Amazon – A tropical climate with two seasons – dry and very hot between the months of April to October and a more mild-heat wet season between November to March. High humidity is present all year long.
