Cusco and Sacred Valley
Nothing says "Cusco" quite like a sweater, shawl, poncho or scarf woven from the hair of the cute and cuddly alpaca.

Andean Cuisine: Where else in theb world will you find roasted cuy (guinea pig)and alpaca steaks rubbing shoulders on fine dining menu.

Inca Architecture: How did the Inca construct stone walls so precisely using 15 century technology, how could they position a temple so it would be oluminated best at the exact moment of the solstice. Ponder history's secrets.

Layered Religion: Like that church's architecture take a closer look at the walls every Catholic church was built on the site, and often on the foundation of an Inca huaca, or sacred place.

Hoteles with History: Cusco's hosteries brim with history. Many are former convents, monasteries, ddwellings of sacred women, or palaces os Spanish conquerors.
