The Incan Empire ruled over much of South America over 1,000 years ago. Today, you could visit some of these former imperial capitals and still feel like you're visiting a different country—local markets sell goods made right there, the architecture is beautiful and dignified, and the people are extremely friendly. If you're looking for a taste of pre-Columbian civilization, consider a trip to Peru. The Andean nation was home to some of the world's most sophisticated civilizations before the Spanish invaded in the 16th century. Visit Palacio del Inka Hotel in Lima and let its royal ruins and colonial structures take you. This 5-star hotel is one of the Cusco hotels that has been beautifully preserved in its original form, complete with its distinctive domed roof. The main building is home to both historical guest rooms and the hotel restaurant that was once part of this palace.
The hotel was the former royal palace of the Inca Empire. It has since been restored to its original glory and now offers various luxury hotel services and experiences for guests looking to get away from it all. From mountain biking to horseback riding, some activities at this luxury hotel will take you away from the hustle and bustle.
It serves as a hotel, conference center, and home to the Cusco Archaeology Museum, which is the only archaeological site in the city that has been preserved throughout the centuries. The museum houses a complete collection of Pre-Columbian and Colonial archaeological and anthropological cultural items from the ancient city. The museum's main hall features a large, life-size model of a typical Cuscoano house. At the same time, the exhibit areas show less-detailed but still fascinating models of typical Cuscoano buildings such as watercraft, a house of the local people, a rural house, and a traditional Native American house.
The hotel's center is the Plazuela del Sol, a marketplace where you can find stalls selling crafts and other activities. The Plazuela del Sol is the heart of the Old Town of Cusco, and it is here that you will find most of Cusco's attractions, including the Zona Colonial and the Hacienda de San Pedro.
