We thought it might be helpful to share our list of places we wanted to visit in and around Cusco. This list was based on reading both Mark Adam's Turn Right at Machu Picchu and Lonely Planet's dedicated 2013 chapter on Cusco.
- The Museum of Precolombian Art
- The Inca Museum
- The Pisco Museum
- The Cathedral
- The Cusco Planetarium
- Yurac Rumi*
- Espiritu Pampa*
- The intihuatana shrine near the hydroelectric station
- Machu Picchu
It was an ambitious list but it was only a wish list. Those marked with an asterix were places we were unable to reach. We'll still cover them to explain why they are significant.
