Cuzco Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum

Although Cuzco is mainly renowned as the ideal departure point for a trip to the Machu Picchu and the Inca valley, the town is also known for its distinctive architecture. Built on the foundations of an ancient Incan city destroyed by Pizarro, the city is dotted with beautiful colonial edifices that marry rigorous geometrical Inca lines with the curls and flourishes of Moorish-Spanish baroque art. Whether it is by the edifices built on old Inca palaces, like the Cathedral, or on old temples, such as the Convento Santo Domingo, you will be captivated!
