On a walk through the streets of Cusco, the great walls and palaces built by the Incas exhibit the colossal architecture of the capital city of Tahuantinsuyo. When the Spanish conquistadors arrived, they used the Inca stone structures as foundations for the churches, convents, and stately homes they built. This symbiosis forms part of the unique character of the city, which was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983.
