"Cusco" Departamento de Cusco by GrumpyDiver
Departamento de Cusco Travel Guide: 2,261 reviews and 5,719 photos
The modern city of Cusco gives you three slices of history that are all intermingled:
1. The Incan Empire;
2. Colonial Spain; and
3. Modern Peru.
The three cultures are intermingled and inseparable. That is one of the wonders of Cusco
The Peruvian government has made a point of trying to preserve some of the ancient skills such as weaving.
The police were in the main square parading around in uniform with the police band playing.
- Pros:Heart of the Incan Empire
- Cons:Everyone else has heard of it too
- In a nutshell:Three cultures - Inca, Colonial Spanish and Modern Peruvian all in the same place
