Cusco is one of Peru’s most popular cities, and for good reason. It’s drenched in history and culture, and is a wonderful place to stroll around and see old colonial structures set alongside Incan ruins. There are all sorts of museums and cathedrals to tour, as well as many delicious restaurants to try out. Outside of city limits travelers can enjoy hiking, kayaking, and horseback riding.
Tierra Viva Cusco Plaza is found next to Cusco’s Plaza de Armas—this is a convenient location for travelers who want to explore Cusco’s historic district. The hotel is set within an old colonial residence known as Casa Pizarro. The house’s traditional architecture and style remain intact, including columns, arches, and stone walls. Tierra Viva Cusco Plaza also has a nice collection of colonial artwork scattered around the hotel.
