Shopping at the Markets of Cusco

No reviews, be the first!

The ancient city of Cusco has been a market center since long before the Incas made it their imperial capital. For countless centuries, merchants and craftspeople have made their way to this high-altitude enclave with their finest wares, the crossroads of a continent—and today, the world.

Cusco’s relatively recent ascent to international jet-setter status, with a UNESCO World Heritage Site on half the world’s bucket nearby, marvelous Machu Picchu, has only enhanced its status as one of the world’s best places to shop.
