Cusco 'an important travel destination'

Article content

13 January 2010

Peru's Cusco has a range of beautiful and interesting attractions to explore, one travel commentator has stated.

Melissa Sullivan, writing for Suite 101, noted that many people often bypass the destination in favour of Machu Picchu - an ancient city located nearby.

"However, Cusco's rich history, indigenous people and abundance of sights make it an important travel destination all on its own," she remarked.

According to Ms Sullivan, the main plaza in the city is "incredibly beautiful" and offers a variety of restaurants in which to enjoy a cup of coffee and a relaxing environment.

Those hoping to be a bit more active can also visit a number of local attractions, including the Church of La Compania and the Sun Temple Coricancha, she added.

Holidaymakers were also advised to check out the ruins of Sacsayhuaman, Tambomachay and Qenqo, which can be viewed independently or as part of a tour.

Last year, The Times suggested taking a trip to the citadel of Choquequirao, an often overlooked Peruvian treasure located above the Apurimac gorge.
