    Day 2: Lima - Cusco
    Very early this morning you will board a flight to the imperial Peruvian city of Cusco. Upon arrival in Cusco, mid-morning, transfer to your hotel. Take the remainder of the morning to nap or relax as you adjust to Cusco's high altitude. In the afternoon your guided tour of the Inca Royal City of Cusco starts in the very impressionable Central Square, known as the "Plaza de Armas," which is surrounded by a beautiful stone arcade. In the Plaza is the Cathedral, which is exceptional because of its contrasts of styles. The outside façade is in Renaissance style, in contrast to its Baroque and plateresque style of its interiors. The Church of the Society of Jesus, (commonly known as the Jesuits), is highlighted by its carved stone façade and its large alter carved in cedar, plated in gold. The Covent of Santo Domingo was built above the most important Inca Temple, the Temple of the Sun, or "Koricancha," as it was known in the Inca language Quechua. Gold laminas or sheets covered the original Inca Temple walls. Near the City of Cusco, you will visit the extraordinary Inca Fortress Sacsayhuaman, made up of three gigantic terraces, superimposed in a zigzag form, and surrounded by enormous walls of rock, some of which are up to 300 meters in length.Q'enqo, was a religious centre formed by a singular flowering of calcareous rock. It has underground galleries and a semicircular amphitheatre with a series of stone seats. Puca Pucará or the "Red Fort" was military base made up of stone stairways, terraces, and walls. Nearby is Tambomachay, well known as "Baths of the Incas", a place dedicated to the cult of the water, formed by aqueducts, channels and small cascades worked in the rock. (B)

By minibus you will climb the switchback road up to the ruins of Machu Pichu. "Discovered" in 1911, Machu Pichu, called the Lost City of the Incas, represents the cultural heritage of mankind. It is a stone city constructed by incredibly sophisticated techniques, even in present-day terms.
