As capital to the Inca Empire, Cusco was an important agricultural region. It was a natural reserve for thousands of native Peruvian species, including around 3,000 varieties of potato cultivated by the people. Fusion and neo-Andean restaurants developed in Cusco, where food is prepared with modern techniques and incorporates a blend of traditional Andean and international ingredients.
Cusco has a subtropical highland climate, and it is usually dry and temperate, with two defined seasons. From April to September (winter) there is abundant sunshine and occasional nighttime freezes; July is the coolest month with an average temperature of 9.7 °C (49.5 °F) average. From October to March (summer), the weather turns cloudy and wet; November is the warmest month with 13.3 °C (55.9 °F) average. Temperatures range between −8.9 and 30 °C (16.0 and 86.0 °F).
In 2006 Cusco was found to be the spot with the highest average ultraviolet light level on Earth.
