Cuzco, founded in 1100 A.D., is the oldest continually inhabited city in the Western hemisphere. Built in a mountainous region considered among the most beautiful on the planet, Cuzco was once the flourishing capital of the Inca Empire. Natives and visitors alike consider it the most impressive of all Peruvian cities for both its history and its remarkable mix of Incan and Spanish colonial architecture. And we’ve yet to mention the breathtaking beauty of the local terrain and the warmth of the local people.
