    Unfortunately, whenever I’ve been to Cuzco, it’s been for work. I do not know the most important archaeological remains or what you can see in the photograph.
    However, I know many old and modern structures. For example, in Peru I know Marcahuamachuco, an impressive archaeological site located in the middle of the northern Andes mountain range. In Europe I know ancient Phoenician, Greek and Roman cities such as Gadir-Cadiz, Naxos -Taormina, Emerita Augusta- Mérida, Londinium -London.

    When I was twenty years old, I visited “Sacsayhuamán”, that was very exciting and unforgettable experience.
    I went with my university colleagues on a study trip.

    Then, the second time I visited Cusco was with my family, we went on holidays and it was really fun. We met many place and archeological sites such as “Coricancha”, “Tambomachay”, “Ollantaytambo” and “Pisac”, but the greatest archeological centre we visited was “Machu Picchu”. All those archeological sites are located in the city of Cusco in Perú.

    However there are other magnificient places to know in Perú as “the Inca Baths”, “the Rescue Room” in Cajamarca or “Chavin de Huantar” in Huaraz.

    The other great structures or buildings that I know but have not visited yet are “the Pyramds of Egypt”, “the lost city of Petra” or “the Basilica of the sacred family” from Barcelona among other places, buildings or great structures to be know.

    Hello Miguel,
    It is a pity that you do not know Sacsayhuamán, it is one of the places that you have to know before dying , I recommend you visit in the month of June that celebrate the festival of Inti Raimy.

    A consultation, where is Marcahuamachuco?

    Yeah, I have visited Cusco three times. I think it is a magic city. Other structure I have visited is Chichen Itza en Mexico.

    In my country, Peru, there are many great structures as the Temple of Chavin de Huantar in Huaraz, Archaeological Complex Kuelap in Chachapoyas or Chan Chan in Trujillo.

    Hello Miguel,
    It is a shame you do not know these places in Cusco. On your next vacations, go to Cusco and visit them! They are amazing!
    I don’t know Marcahuamachuco; can you tell me in what city it’s located?

    Thank you!
