Welcome to Huánuco

Huánuco lies on the important Inca route from Cuzco to Cajamarca, the key settlement in the north of the empire, and developed as a major way station accordingly. The Incas chose Huánuco Viejo, 150km west, as their regional stronghold, but the exposed location prompted the Spanish to move the city to its current scenic setting on the Río Huallaga in 1541. Today, little is left of Huánuco's colonial past.
