Learn about this sacred site which was built by Incan leader Pachacutec. Travel outside the city to drive by the sites of Sacsayhuaman, Q’enqo and Puca Pucara. Get a panoramic view from the upper deck of the bus. On the way back to Cusco, stop at a shamanic center. Witness a traditional Incan ceremony which pays tribute to Pachamama, (Incan mother earth), the mountains, and the natural world.
