"Old Inca Capital" Cusco by hartti

Cusco Travel Guide: 1,095 reviews and 2,384 photos

Heart of Inca Country

Cusco (Cuzco) is a fantastic town in the middle of mountais. Hundreds of pubs and restaurants offer their services for a low price. Pisco sour is available in most places. The best accomodations are just in the heart of the town (San Blas) in typical colonial houses.

San Blas

San Blas is full of narrow streets with comfortable restaurants, pubs and cafes, hostels and shops. It also provides the tourist physical practicing when climbing on the hill.

About the same scenery as above, but painted by an unknown (or I cannot recognize the autograph) street painter.

    Just goes to show how natural and unspoiled they are, otherwise they would have charged 0.99 like the rest of the world. Nice pisco sour theme running through this page!
