The town of Cusco, located in the region of Cusco in south-eastern Peru, is definitely an important historic and tourist spot which each year receives almost one-million visitors from all around the world. It was declared a World Heritage Site in 1983.Cusco was the money of the glorious Inca Empire until the arrival of the Spanish conqueror Francisco Pizarro, who plundered the town and re-built it. The Spaniards destroyed several Inca temples and palaces, and created their new city within the walls that remained standing.Cusco may be the most visited city in Peru. The city features a great number of very beautiful old buildings such as the Cathedral of Cuzco, La Merced Church and Convent, the Plaza de Armas, and more. Nearby Cusco, must-see attractions include the fortress of Sacsayhuaman and of course, the breathtaking citadel of Machu Picchu, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.Cusco counts with a good selection of restaurants, souvenirs stores and bars, where tourists can have a good time and make good thoughts and machu picchu hotel offer inviting rooms, excellent to have a rest after having a time of exciting excursions.Peru's southern-most town, Tacna, is the money of the area with the same name. Through the Pacific War, Tacna was filled by Chileans, along with Arica. A plebiscite to determine both areas' sovereignty was supposed to be used after 10 years, but it never happened. In order to persuade the local citizenry to take Chile as their new nation; however, Chileans began a campaign, the folks of Tacna never succumbed to the propaganda. Finally, in 1929, the region of Tacna was reincorporated to Peruvian area. Because of that, Tacna can also be referred to as the Heroic City.Tacna is just a very commercially productive and wonderful area with a population of over 200 000 people. The town counts with many tourist attractions, including the monument of a Cathedral, Alto de la Alianza, the Alameda Bolognesi Walkway, the caves of Toquepala, and more. Visiting this attractive and traditional city and residing at a resort Tacna is certainly a remarkable experience that I would recommend to everyone.
