What do you mean by the Safe Travel's Seal?
It is a great joy for us to be able to inform you that Peru received from the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) the Seal “Safe Travel's”, the first seal of safety and hygiene in the world, in tourism, against Covid -19.
As it is recalled, the WTTC created the “Safe Travel's” Seal with the aim of contributing to the responsible and safe reopening of tourism, once the local authorities determine that the conditions exist for it.

We tell you a little more about Sacsayhuamán
Sacsayhuamán is an emblematic Inca monument of Cusco. This archaeological park, which is located 3 kilometers from the Imperial City, houses 33 sites among which the Sacsayhuamán Fortress stands out, an area where the Inti Raymi or Fiesta del Sol is celebrated every June 24. There is also the archaeological complex of Qenko (labyrinth), where ceremonies were held in honor of the Sun, the Moon and the Stars; and Puca Pucara, which has numerous enclosures, interior squares, watchtowers, aqueducts and roads; and it would have served as a resting place and lodging for the Inca.
We are waiting for you in Peru, we are waiting for you in Cusco!
