Huchuy Qosqo and Sacred Valley 2D/1N – Private Service

Huchuy Qosqo is an archeological complex located in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, and after Pisaq and Ollantaytambo is the most important site of the valley.

The site was built before Pisaq and Ollantaytambo since it was part of the Inca Trail in Peru. When the Chancas, the enemies of the Incas, threaten Cusco in 1438, the Incas left the city and took refuge in this palace, Huchuy Qosqo.

During the Spanish conquest, Gonzalo Pizarro found a mummy in this site and ordered to burn it, the descendants of the Incas recovered the ashes and keep in a box that was discovered years later.

This Inca site can be gotten by foot; you will have two options to discover this wonderful place. One option will take you to discover many archeological sites and towns of the Sacred Valley of the Incas and the other option will take you to Machu Picchu.
