Discover Cusco

Calle Plazoleta Nazarenas 223, Cusco, Peru

The majesty of Cusco is dizzying, but you’ll find this has nothing to do with the altitude. The city resides high in the Peruvian Andes, casting a dramatic scene across the Urubamba Valley. The Incan Empire once ruled from here and the cityscape is still jeweled with ancient ruins.

In its more recent history, the city has evolved into a chic, cosmopolitan metropolis. Nowhere is this more apparent than the neighborhood of San Blas, Cusco’s bohemian quarter. Weave among the flurry of cobbled streets reaching out from Plaza de Armas and you’ll soon happen upon the vaulted cloisters of Belmond Palacio Nazarenas. Our former Inca palace is an oasis of calm in the heart of this thriving district. Once you’ve taken time to acclimatize, you’ll want to step out and delve in.
