If you are at Cuzco, you should definietly visit Machu Picchu, the ancient Inka fort on top of the mountain. A huge part of the houses are preserved. And also the nature is worth a visit. There is an railroad till Aguas Calientes, a small village at the foot of the mountain. If you walk up to the fort, be aware that it is a long way up.

Address:
Tomasa Titto Condemayta, Cusco, Peru
