The Navel of the World

Welcome to the city of Cusco, the ancient capital and spiritual center of the Incas, once considered “the navel of the world” and the center of the Tawantinsuyo Empire. This is the city where the four main roads that connected every corner of the empire originated. Get ready to discover the mystery of this city, its legends and religion, its rulers and construction techniques, its temples, streets and plazas, as well as the arrival of the Spaniards and the foundation of the Colonial Cusco.


The Origin of the Empire

The history of the Andean people has always been linked to Lake Titicaca. According to the old priests, a very long time ago, when gods still walked the earth, the Sun God felt sorry for the human race because they were living like beasts. So, he sent one of his sons called Manco Capac as well as a daughter called Mama Ocllo from heaven who came out of Lake Titicaca to establish the Inka Empire.
