After the conquest by the Spaniards, Manco Inca and his successors dominated the Vilcabamba region. It included several centers and settlements built in honor of the last dynasty of the Incas: Manco Inca, Sayre Tupac, Titu Cusi Yupanqui and Túpac Amaru, these forming the scene of this walk from Choquequirao to Machu Picchu.

Cusco was the capital of the Inca Empire and one of its largest settlements. It was also a religious center, being the coronation site and burial place of several emperors. The city was also a centre of art, with painters and sculptors who made magnificent works. 

The Spanish conquerors destroyed most buildings in Cusco, except for some colonial structures built on top of Inca constructions. Several constructions in the area are linked to the last emperors, such as Cruzhuamán y Cocalio, where Sayr Tupac died, and Llanbelén, where the last emperor was baptized. Also linked to this dynasty is Chinchero, an Inca settlement converted into a village with colonial structures and whose main attraction is its church.
