Every day, over 3,000 travelers arrived in this region by road and air; however, the figure would be greater due to the increasing flow of domestic visitors, who took advantage of the long weekend, Dircetur Head Carlos Landauro Castro Cuba told Andina news agency.

The act usually gathers Cusco’s citizens, while tourists fill and overflow Cusco’s main square.

Besides visits paid to Machu Picchu Archaeological Park, site also known as the Incan Empire’s top attraction, visitors toured the Sacred Valley of the Incas, South Valley, Historic Center, Sacsayhuaman, Tambomachay and Pucapucara (located a few minutes away from the metropolis).
