Cusco Inca Sights
As the capital of the Inca region of Tahuantinsuyu, Cusco itself is an Inca sight. But with colonial and modern buildings covering many places, what were hundreds of inca sites have been reduced to a few dozen. Below are a list of favorites.
In addition to those below, here are a few key Inca buildings that you can admire from the inside or outside:
- Hatun Rumiyoc (12 Angle Stone)
- Sapantiana (aqueduct)
BTC & City Tour
Whatever sites you’re interested in you’ll inevitably find yourself buying a Boleto Turístico de Cusco (BTC) and considering an agency-run “City Tour” of sights just outside the city.
I have two published lists that include more information that I have space for here. One is 15 Inca sites in and near Cusco published by Matador Network. Another is 10 free Inca sites in the city of Cusco published by Thrifty Nomads.
