Cusco image

From Lake Titicaca a railway and paved road run 300 kilometres at an average altitude of 3,500m to Cusco. Here, according to legend, Manco Capac plunged his golden staff into fertile ground, finding the ‘navel of the earth’, and founded the capital of the Inca Empire. Today Cusco (3,400m) is one of Peru’s most attractive cities, a fascinating fusion of the past and present that visitors find very hard to leave.
