If I could live my life again,
I would not try to be so perfect
I would relax more, make more trips,
contemplate more sunsets
rise over mountains, I would swim more rivers.
Go to more places where I have never gone
From the poem "Moments". J.L. Borges
For its age and importance, the center of Cusco City (Cuzco) keeps many buildings, plazas and streets of pre-Columbian times as well as colonial buildings, which led it to become a World Heritage site by Unesco in 1983. Among the main sights of the city: San Blas Neighborhood, San Pedro Market, Cusco's Cathedral, Koricancha Temple, Sacsayhuaman, Q'enqo, Square, Temple and Convent of La Merced.
The main economic activity of its inhabitants is the reception of tourism, which now exceeds one million visitors annually.
It is the only city in Peru that has and maintains full employment. But without neglecting the important contribution of agriculture to the city, especially corn and potatoes.The population of the city was largely mestizo and indigenous, but now the white population has grown significantly in the city reached 30%. The city is experiencing a process of population explosion driven by the boom of tourism.
The city has a population of 319.422 inhabitants per year according to the 2002 INEI (National Institute of Statistics and Informatics)
Cusco was named a World Heritage Site by Unesco in Paris, France on December 9, 1983
Machu Picchu Wonder of the World
Machu Picchu is considered at the same time a masterpiece of architecture and engineering. Its unique architectural features and landscaping, and the veil of mystery that has woven around him much of the literature published on the site, have made him one of the most popular tourist destinations on the planet.
Machu Picchu is on the List of World Heritage of UNESCO since 1983 as part of a whole cultural and eco-known Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu.On July 7, 2007, Machu Picchu was elected one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, a private initiative of New Open World Corporation (NOWC), established by Swiss Bernard Weber, did not need the endorsement of any institution or government to continue its electoral purposes and to select the wonders of the vote broken down by more than one hundred million voters.
