ITINERARY OF THE WALKING TOUR IN CUSCO

The Walking Tour in Cusco offers a unique opportunity to explore the Inca city in a distinctive way, as we have different hours available to accommodate your schedule and preferences.

To kick off this tour, we will pick you up from your hotel and take you on a 20-minute journey to Cristo Blanco, located on the "El Calvario" hill or PuKamuku hill. This Christ statue was gifted to the people of Cusco as a token of gratitude by the Arab Palestinian colony. From there, you'll have a panoramic view of the city and an impressive landscape of Cusco, which is shaped like a Puma. Our walk will begin, and we'll pass by the archaeological remains of Sacsayhuaman.

As we descend, we'll reach the San Cristóbal viewpoint, where the Qolqas are located. We'll stroll through the picturesque streets of the most popular neighborhoods of ancient Cusco and visit the Colonial Aqueduct of Sapantiana, derived from the Quechua words "Sanpan," meaning "unique," and "TIANA," which roughly translates to "seat" (located at an altitude of 3500 meters above the P'ujru River). This colonial hydraulic architecture is built mainly with four-level arches, potentially using lithic elements from the sacred huaca of Sapantiana located a few meters away. This aqueduct was used to channel and transport water from one peak to another. You'll have the opportunity to take many photos here and enjoy the beautiful view offered by Seven Little Lambs Street with its charming alleys.

Our next destination is the Artisan Neighborhood of San Blas, T'oqokachi, which means "Cave of Salt" in Quechua. This is a typical and picturesque district where you'll find the San Blas Church. Many artisans have their workshops and craft stores here. It's full of cafes, restaurants, museums, and art galleries. We'll walk through its narrow and steep streets with old houses built by the Spanish over significant Inca foundations. We'll make a stop at the famous Twelve-Angle Stone for some photos.

We'll continue our walk to Plaza de Armas of Cusco, which was known as "Auccay Pata" in the Inca period, meaning "The Most Important Site." It was a large square about 250 meters long by 120 meters wide, divided into large courts and Cusqueño (Inca) enclosures. This site was the origin of QOSQO (Cusco) as a city and served as a place for the exchange of products, ideas, concepts, traditions, and customs, becoming the political and economic center before the arrival of the Spanish in 1534.

We'll learn the names of the streets, the portals surrounding Plaza de Armas, and the secret history. Cusco, being the Best Destination in the World and the heart of the city, is a perfect place to spend a relaxing time enjoying coffee or a meal at the numerous restaurants surrounding it. We'll proceed to Plaza Espinar, where we'll observe that the facade of the Convent of La Merced bears holes from bullets that were part of a skirmish between Pierolistas and Caceristas.

Our final stop will be at the Local San Pedro Market, where we'll experience the vibrant culture of the Cusqueños. This market operates every day of the week and offers a variety of items and products for sale, including local crafts, fresh juices, delicious cheeses, large breads, tropical fruits, herbs, spices, coca leaves, and even "strange and exotic" products. The prices are reasonable, and the quality of the products is exceptional.

You can take as much time as you want to explore the numerous small stalls in this market while purchasing traditional souvenirs. Thus, we conclude our Walking Tour in Cusco.
