南美当地向导YolandaReceiving tourists to the city of Cusco, Sacsayhuaman is a former Inca mountain fortress, located in the northern suburbs of the ancient Inca capital Cusco. This strong "fortress" made of huge stones sits on a steep hillside overlooking the city and offers a wide view of the southeast valley. In 1983, Cusco and Sacsayhuaman were included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Today this ancient fortress is the grand stage of the annual Inca festivals-Inti Raymi and Warachikuy. The average altitude of the local area is 3400m. It is recommended that tourists just come to drink some local Ku Ke tea to ease, and move forward slowly. Welcome to Peru to travel and experience the mysterious Inca culture!

pan***heThe Temple of the Sun, a famous attraction in the ancient city of Cusco in Peru, we went to lunch at noon, but the house was closed at noon, so we went for lunch. After the meal, the Sun Temple opened. After all, it was a big attraction. After buying a ticket, I queued up. After buying a ticket, I followed the free map to transfer. The inside is not big, there are a lot of tourists, and there is a brief introduction on the map. According to the picture, I saw it with gusto. I only hate that some scenic spots are really not found or can't be understood. The photo effect of this scenic spot is very good, especially when the sun shines on the corridor, it forms spotted shadows, which appear to be scattered.

chinadesk1When you come to the Plaza of Arms in the ancient city, the most conspicuous is the Catedral Del Cuzco. Brick-red buildings, high bell towers, and majestic crosses, you need to walk up the steps to reach the entrance. The wall above the doorway has fine carvings. This church looks similar to European churches, but is large in size, and there are small churches next to and behind the main building. The three door openings on the front are dark green, and the cathedral side is a building with arcades, decorated in Spanish style. When we went, the entrance was by the side door, and the ticket was 25 pesos (1 peso = 2RMB). There seemed to be a religious group visiting that day, and the staff were very strict and it was strictly forbidden to take pictures. Like most churches, it is quiet and believers pray together. Large religious oil paintings on the walls tell doctrinal and historical stories. Sculptures of religious figures stand, and some ancient religious articles are also displayed. The stone floor of the church is sharply polished, and every detail shows its ancient and vicissitudes. Sit in the church for a while, gaze at the high altar and feel the religious mystery. According to the information, the Plaza of Arms was the most important political, economic and military center of the Inca Empire. Now the metal statue of Inca King Pachacuti still holds a scepter overlooking the former glory of the Plaza of Arms. People are relaxing and chatting in the square, and they can also see women and girls wearing traditional Inca costumes, and some even lead cute llamas to sell the first corn planted by the Incas. Although the temperature is high, the sun is scorching, and tourists are bustling with excitement, exploring the past and present of this splendid Inca cultural birthplace. The World Heritage Assessment Committee’s comment on Cusco is that the ancient city of Cusco is located in the Andes Mountains of Peru and developed into a complex city center under the Inca ruler Pachacuti, with unique religious and administrative functions. The ancient city is surrounded by clearly visible agricultural, handicraft and industrial areas.
