Study abroad in Cusco
Take your Spanish course in Cusco and visit the mysterious and iconic Incan city of Machu Picchu.
Cusco was the most important Incan city and is now the gateway for Machu Picchu, which has become a must see for travelers from around the world. As a result the city mixes historical Incan temples with trendy apartments and restaurants, and there are always plenty of travelers passing through. In addition to the archaeological treasures, you will also find well-preserved colonial architecture, a thriving nightlife and a host of museums and galleries. The city is also well-known for its large indigenous population and there are therefore various interesting markets and traditional Peruvian restaurants.
Of course, most visitors come to Cusco to see the ancient ruins in the Sacred Valley and to enjoy their beautiful Andean setting. Just outside the city lies Sacsayhuaman, the site of the 1536 battle between the Spanish and Incans, and Qínqu, an Incan temple most probably used to make sacrifices to the gods. Machu Picchu is a litter further afield, accessible by train from the nearby town of Poroy or by a four day trek along the famous Inca trail.
