Cusco or Cuzco (both graphical symbols are acceptable according to the RAE, Real Academy of the Spanish language) is the main destination that you can get to know on your trips through Peru. Learn more about it in this section.The legend tells that Cusco was founded by 2 ancestral patriarchs, who, due to the design of the deity Sun, emerged from the Titicaca lake with the mission of putting in order the Andean men’s life. They would be the beginning of the vast Incan Empire, which as time goes by would reach its maximum glory consolidating as a powerful State. In 1911 the American explorer Hiram Bingham would refind the incan citadel to the world’s eyes with the discovery of Machu Picchu. From that day the growth of Cusco has been exponential, turning to be one of the most visited worldwide tourist destinations and favourite place for national and foreign tourists to “discover” the beauty of the Machu Picchu citadel on its travel to Cusco.
The origin of Huancayo’s name is wanka (rock) and yock (someone who has something). It means the place where the rock is.Capital of the Junín Department, the province of Huancayo is one of the richest of the Andes. In the past the city was inhabited by the wancas who, despite their reputation of warrior culture, were dedicated to agriculture. Before the city was subjoined by the incas in 1460, the city was settled by the huaris. Some colonial houses of the city are witnesses of the Spanish invasion in 1572. The church of La Merced has traces of the invasion and it’s the place where the Peruvian Constitution was signed in 1839.There is a handmade fair celebrated every Sunday at the Huacanvelica Avenue.
