The Sacred Valley of the Incas in Marie Claire’s U.S Edition


The Sacred Valley of the Incas is one of the must-see places for tourists to visit when going to Cusco.

Among 2018’s highlights, it is worth mentioning that Peru remains one of the favorite places for visitors from all over the globe. The September issue of the U.S edition of the renown international magazine “Marie Claire” dedicated 13 pages to the Sacred Valley of the Incas by using wonderful photographs of landscapes such as the Moray Archaeological Complex and the Maras Salt Mines.

The September issue of fashion magazines is considered the most important of the year because it sets the tone in design for the next 12 months. Behind the camera was world-renowned fashion photographer Michelangelo Di Battista, and Pauline Hoarau was the model.

There is a wide range of reasons why Marie Claire’s staff may have decided to use the Valley of the Incas for their pages, however, the increasing number of tourists from the U.S may be the true reason behind it. Peru took the throne as the top destination for tourists from the U.S in South America by dethroning Brazil.

Appearing on Marie Claire will surely boost status among the most popular tourist destinations in the world, presenting the country as an attractive and exclusive destination for tourists interested in ancient cultures, nature, and imposing landscapes. Furthermore, this can also help promoting Peru as a destination for locations for the making of films, music videos, and TV shows.

What magazines do you think can feature Peru’s landscapes on their pages in 2018?
