The magical city of Cusco is located in the valley of the Huatanay River, in the southern highlands of Peru. Its name in Quechua, Qosqo, means “navel” or in symbolic form, “center” or “meeting point”, because from the city of Cusco which was the capital of the Inca empire or Tahuantinsuyo began a vast network of roads (Inca Trail) that led to the four suyos or regions, which made up the 4 parts of the universe in the Andean cosmovision. Considered by the Incas as the “Abode of the Gods”, Cusco is, without a doubt, the most fascinating, magical and mystical city in the Andes.
Founded by Manco Capac and Mama Ocllo, children of the Sun God, who left Lake Titicaca with the mission to find a place that would be the center of a great kingdom.
