    Day 1
    CITY TOUR
    Reception in Airport or Terrestrial Terminal and transfer to the hotel. The City Tour lasts approximately 4 hours, as the first visit you will have: QORICANCHA: also called Temple of the Sun, it was a place that in the past served as the seat for the ceremonies and studies of Astronomy and mathematics of the Inca people. Tour that includes architecture, history and art, where you can see a little more about the interesting Inca culture that was so rich and coarse. SACSAYHUAMAN : the ruins of the Sacsayhuaman fortress have Inca walls that some stones weigh more than 100 tons. The most important measures are 7 meters high and weigh 128 tons. The ancient city of Qosq'o had the shape of a puma, whose head was Sacsayhuaman. Q'ENQO : Kenqo was possibly used by the Incas as a center of worship, the passages that resemble a labyrinth have on their flanks several channels in the form of "Amarus" (snakes) where the blood of animal sacrifices ran, which they were generally the most beautiful and unique, perhaps that was the reason why black animals were the chosen ones. PUCA PUCARA : Pukapukara is a Quechua word that means "red fortress" because the sunset changes the color of the rocks to red. Traditional information indicates that, when the Inca was about to visit the Baths of Tambomachay, the formidable group of soldiers, dancers and others stayed in Pukapukara, which was barracks and tambo (resting place). TAMBOMACHAY : Tradition knows this monument as "The Bath of the Ñusta" due to the existence of two aqueducts that carry crystal clear water all year round. It is an unmissable destination, where the Inca and his entourage came to relax, not far from the city of Cusco.
