Heart of the City
The flags of both Peru and the Inca empire fly above the Plaza de Armas, Cusco's central square and busy hub of activity. Come during the day to visit sites like the 16th-century cathedral (built using stones from the Sacsaywamán site, and housing a notable collection of colonial art), stroll through the colonial-era arcades, pop into the shops, or lie out in the central park. Then be sure to return at night, when the lighting gives it all a magical glow and there's an energy in the air from the nightlife-seeking crowds.
