After walking downtown Cuzco, and visiting the ever abundant tourist traps that the city has to offer, we wandered to this beautiful cemetery, which was a very enlightening experience. It is always fascinating how cultures deal with the passing of heir loved ones, and in...More

I doubted my guide when he said the cemetery was the happiest place in town -- but it was. We visited on Sunday after church. Locals were there visiting their deceased relatives in the mausoleums. They took the favorite food and drink of the deceased...More
