    Also fondly known as "sexy woman", Sacsayhuaman is quite alluring with its ancient Incan intricate stone work construction. It is also one of the closer Incan fortress like structure complex from Cusco so there is no excuse for not visiting.

    Huayna Picchu

    17 reviews

    Step climb, but technically not a difficult one. The views of Macchu Pichu from atop this mountain are spectacular, and definitely worth the tired calves. A bit of advice, make sure that you try to get here first thing in the morning. They limit how many people can climb up at the same time, and close the trail in the ...

    4.5
    26 reviews

    Spectacular Incan Fortress nestled in the urubamba river valley and about half way between Cusco and Machu Picchu. Next to Machu Picchu this is probably the most impressive Incan ruins. The agricultral terraces are impressive, as are the storehouses, which are precariously located on the surrounding mountain faces.

    Korikancha

    Plazoleta de Santo Domingo, Cuzco Peru
    4
    10 reviews

    The Spanish reused much of the Incan stonework in the building of their own churches and buildings. You can take a look at the spectacular foundations of the older Incan temples, that were repurposed by the Spanish in the cathedral and the convent of Santo Domingo.

    San Blas

    Plazoleta San Blas, Cuzco Peru
    4.5
    9 reviews

    San Blas area of Cusco is much quieter than the main square but filled with ancient Inca streets and a mixture of Spanish colonial homes. Many locals referred to it as the art district. There are some nicer hotels in this district as well because they get the stunning views of Plaza de Armas from the hillside.

    Moray

    13 kilómetros del Cusco, Cuzco Peru
    4.5
    10 reviews

    Looks like a massive amphitheatre, or pushed down crop circle. This massive terraced structure is kind of mind boggling. People think that it was developed as an agricultural experiment station, allowing the Incas to play with different micro climates and crops, which makes sense as there is so major temperature changes from the top terrace to the middle low one.

    Cusco Cathedral

    4.5
    16 reviews

    The Cusco Cathedral is very impressive. It took 109 years to be built and it was built on top of Inca Wiracocha's palace. It has three main rooms, two side rooms adorned with pure gold altars and the main one with a breathtaking silver altar. The cathedral is very ostentatious, because the Spanish thought that decorating it with gold and ...

    Beautiful and ornate gothic-barroque church, that was built ontop of a major Incan temple. The foundations of the Incan temple were reused in the construction of the Cathedral. The church also houses a beautiful collection of colonial artwork that shows some of the interesting mixtures of european and criollo styles.

    Choquequirao

    5
    3 reviews

    While the crowds board the train or set off on the highly regulated Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, you can (literally) take the road less traveled to Choquequirao. This ancient city was also an important hub for the Incas in the 15th and 16th centuries and the design and architecture of the site is very similar to its much more ...

    Qorikancha

    5
    2 reviews

    When I came across Qoricancha I couldn't stop staring at it and saying how beautiful it was. Qoricancha was the temple of the sun in the low city (the other one was Saqsaywaman) and on top of it the Spanish built the church of Santo Domingo. The dominicans covered the stone walls with plaster, but in 1950, the great earthquake ...

    I trekked the Inca Trail with this local company and had a great time. The local guides were enthusiastic and had studied up on history and culture, which made the walk more educational and enlightening. The cooks and porters were also awesome, even when a few in our group got altitude sickness and lagged behind.
