Cuzco, which in the ancient Quechua language means "navel of the world", was an important hub in Inca times that connected all of South America, from Colombia to the north of Argentina.

The mentioned properties inscribed on UNESCO`s World Heritage List are just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many other interesting sites in Peru too. Some of them are well known, but other are still waiting to be explored. Each year there are interesting discoveries in Peru. It’s also likely to believe that there will be several big discoveries in Peru in the future. Perhaps someone will find Eldorado one day?

Additional information
Peru lies on the Pacific coast of South America just south of the Equator. To the Quechua Indians Peru means "land of abundance."
