Choquequirao which means “Cradle of Gold” is considered one of the last bastions of resistance and refuge of the Incas, who by orders of Manco Inca, abandoned the city of Cusco to take refuge in the cities of the Vilcabamba region, when around the year 1535 Cusco was besieged by the Spaniards. It was in this place (and in general in all the valley of Vilcabamba) where Manco Inca and the other Incas of Vilcabamba resisted the onslaught of the Spaniards, until the capture and execution of Tupac Amaru I in 1572.
