Peru is filled with many cultural attractions as well as things to do in the big city.
The Incan Empire- Qusqo (Cuzco) was the center of the Inca Empire and now has about 300,000 residents still there. Remains of the Incan Empire still remain prevalent in Qosqo. The “new” residents of Qosqo have integrated the Incan remains into their daily lives.
These walls make up the structures of the current buildings in Peru. Also, the water channels that were made hundreds of years ago still clean the streets in these parts of Peru.
The last stronghold of the Incan civilization was located in Machu Piccu, Peru.
