Description

You will start the tour at the Sacsayhuam√°n fortress, one of the emblematic Inca constructions. It is a huge fortress made of very large stones. You will then go to Qenqo, located four kilometers away from Cusco city, which is a mainly religious archaeological complex where it is believed that propitiatory agricultural rituals were carried out. You will continue to Puka Pukara, located seven kilometers away from Cusco. Puka Pukara, which means red fortress, was an architectural complex presumably used for military purposes; it has many rooms, squares, bathrooms, aqueducts, walls, and towers, and it is believed that the Inca's entourage used it while he rested at Tambomachay. Next, you will explore the fountains of Tambomachay, a construction that has fine stone finishings and a high command of hydraulic engineering, with aqueducts that continue supplying clear water to this place. Also known as the Inca Bath, Tambomachay was probably the leisure place for the Inca and his entourage.
