2 ] In 1983 Cusco was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO with the designation "City of Cuzco". Spain's conquerors adopted the native name and transcribed it in phonetic terms as Cuzco or, more rarely, Cozco. While Cuzco was the default spelled word on offical records and records during Cuzco' s time,[5] Cusco was also used.

The Cuzco, spoken as in sixteenth centuries Spain, seems to have been a narrow approach to the Cusco Quechua name.

The Incan legends say that the ancient kingdom was reconstructed by Sapa Inca Pachacuti, the man who turned the kingdom of Cuzco from a dozy city-state into the huge kingdom of Tawantinsuyu. However, archeological records suggest a slow, more organically grown town that began before Pachacuti. It was built according to a concrete map in which two streams passed through the town.

Archeologists have proposed that this map be Republican in other places. During the Inca War, after the Huayna Capac's deaths in 1527, the Huáscar Empire took over the town.
