Photographer's Note

Capital of the Inca Empire and today considered historical capital of Peru, Cusco suffered great changes throughout its history. The first of them took place when the first Inca, Manco Capac, arrived with his group to inhabit the old Acamama and founded the city. After defeating the Chancas, the Inca Pachacutec assumed the power and transformed it into a great political and spiritual center, doing a lot of great workmanship around the city. But the greatest change took place when it was conquered by the Spanish, being half destroyed and rebuilt in European style. But it still keeps imposing indigenous constructions in the middle of a modern city. In the picture, the Weapons Square, in which the Cathedral of Cusco was built in place of the Palace of the Inca Viracocha.
