Mystery and Adventure
Four roads once led from Cusco’s main square to the four corners of the Inca empire that extended from what is today Ecuador and part of Colombia to northern Chile and Argentina, including all of Peru and Bolivia. An empire almost as vast as the Roman empire, the Inka nation was connected by a road network stretching over 23,000 km. (14,300 miles). Due to its position as the capital of the Inka dynasty, contemporary Cusco, a city 3,300 meters above sea level (10,500 ft.) is a showcase of several different cultures: Pre-Inka, Inka, Colonial and Republican.
