Cusco is a city in southeastern Peru located in the Andes mountain range. It is the capital of the Cusco region and is considered the oldest continuously inhabited city in the Americas, having been inhabited since the 9th century. It is also the gateway to Machu Picchu, the famous Inca city located nearby. Cusco is located at an elevation of 11,152 feet, making it the highest city in the world.

The city has a rich cultural and historical legacy, and is a popular tourist destination. It is home to many ancient Incan sites, such as the Coricancha, the Temple of the Sun, and the Sacsayhuaman fortress. The city is also known for its colonial architecture, particularly the Baroque-style churches built by the Spanish during their conquest of the region.

Cusco was the capital of the Inca Empire, and was the center of the Inca religion. The city was also the site of a major battle between the Spanish and the Inca in 1536, which resulted in the Spanish victory and the destruction of much of the city.

In recent years, Cusco has become an important center of the Peruvian economy, with many industries, such as tourism and textiles, based in the city. It is also a major transportation hub, with many domestic and international flights arriving and departing from the city's airport.

Cusco is a city of great beauty and culture, and is a must-see destination for anyone visiting Peru. Its unique blend of Inca and Spanish culture, combined with its stunning mountain scenery, make it an unforgettable experience.
