The best things to do in Cuzco

One of the most famous places to visit in Cuzco is Machu Picchu, a beautiful Inca citadel discovered in 1911 and considered one of the seven new wonders of the world. It is both a masterpiece of architecture and engineering, and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1983. For most tourists, a visit to this ancient city tops their list of what to do in Cuzco.

But Machu Picchu is not the only sight to see! In fact, there are many interesting Cuzco attractions
in and around the city.

One of the most important things to do in Cuzco is visit the Plaza de Armas, the scene of many of the most important historical events in the city. Next to it stands the Cathedral built on the ruins of an Inca temple, another of the top attractions in Cuzco. From this square you can travel to the Barrio de San Blas by Hatun Rumiyuq Street, a walk that is one of the most popular Cuzco activities for tourists.

The Barrio de San Blas is where you'll find artisans, workshops and craft shops and is one of the most picturesque areas of the city. Other things to see in Cuzco are Q'oricancha, an ancient Inca Sun Temple, the ruins of Tambomachay, Puca Pucara, Kenko and Saqsayhuaman and the Sacred Valley. As you can see, there is tons of stuff to do in Cusco! Have a look at these tips and recommendations from the minube community and let's start planning your trip today!
