The first Spaniards arrived in the city of Cusco Peru on November 15, 1533.

Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro officially discovered Cusco on March 23, 1534, naming it the “Very noble and great city of Cusco”.

“We can assure your majesty that it is so beautiful and has such fine buildings that it would even be remarkable in Spain.” Pizarro reported.

This spelled the end of the Inca Empire.

Here’s a colonialist depicted in a costumed parade in Cuzco.
