Overview

Qeswachaca Inca Bridge: Inca architecture reached levels of development, even today it surprises the entire world. A sample of this ingenuity is still maintained in the Cusco region. Three hours from the city, in the province of Canas, in the district of Quehue, is the  Qeswachaka Inca bridge, declared by UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage, this Inca creation is used to cross the Apurimac River.

It is 28 meters long and 1.20 meters wide, being built to date with ichu. This bridge served as part of the Qhapaq Ñan road system, approximately 500 years old. Therefore traditions and customs are still present, accompanied by rituals for their realization. Also the Qeswachaca Inca Bridge is the last one that has survived modernity and continues to pass its ritual from generation to generation. It is a new tourist alternative in Cusco.
