Latika Cusco Travel has designed several day tours and complete packages to let travelers learn about the Inca and pre-Inca cultures. Latika Cusco Travel’s goal is to provide all the necessary information about the history and beauty of Cusco as well as to provide the best customer service possible and Cusco Travel details. Latika Cusco Travel has prepared a short overview about Cusco and its surroundings. The history of Cusco started about 3,000 years ago when a few inhabitants of the Tiahuanaco Culture decided to settle next to the River Huatanay. During the 1300s the Incas started to rule Cusco, but Inca Pachacutec was the Emperor who converted Cusco in the Empire of the Incas. Nowadays, Cusco is a cosmopolitan city where it is possible to find the best of the Southern Peruvian culture. Latika Cusco Travel believes that the mysticism of Cusco will make you feel as if you are in a different world. Most people planning to stay in Cusco for one or two days go back home regretting their choice.
The City of Cusco is surrounded by several Incan and Colonial buildings. This combination of buildings gives Cusco a magical architecture and style. The Cathedral of Cusco, completed in 1654, is a masterpiece of Colonial architecture. At the Qoricancha Temple, the Spaniards built the Church of Santo Domingo. This building is a clear example of the use of Incan walls as the base of Colonial buildings. The mystery of Sacsayhuaman has been part of the research of several archeologists from all over the world because of its immense stones placed together.
Southern Cusco was inhabited by the Waris, the Incas, and the Spaniards, all of whom chose the area because of its beauty and rich land. About 1500 years ago the Pre-Colombian culture named Wari built Pikillacta, believed to be an administrative and ceremonial center. Later on in the same area, the Incas built the Royal Gardens of Tipon, where it is possible to observe an incredibly perfect system of aqueducts as well as beautiful terraces. During the colonial period, the Spaniards built a church in Andahuaylillas. Today this Church is widely known as the Sistine Chapel of South America.
