CUZCO - The Inca capital is the first volume of the series. "Qosqo" was the heart, the very centre of the Andean world, the capital of Twantinsuyu, the so-called 'Empire' that extended over nine-tenths of western South America. On November 1533, the Spanish entered the city and in March 1534 the 'Spanish founding' of Cuzco took place under Francisco Pizarro, who named it 'the Most Noble and Great City of Cuzco'.
