Nestled in the heart of the Andes, Cusco has an ancient name that means ‘navel of the universe’ in the Quechua language. Along the cobblestone streets, winding between colonial cathedrals and memories of the Inca reign, the Yeso white of the lime walls of the barrio de San Blas and the neutral Paja shades of the churches mingle with the intense colours of the clothes of Andean tradition, green Muna, Violeta and Paprika.
