It is unimaginable as to how such a fortress could have been built about 900 years ago, by a people who had no written script and then likely no architectural drawings to guide them in cutting the huge stones to size and lifting them into...More

Easy walk straight up for fantastic views of Cusco. Don’t miss the Rock Slide. Wish I had a guide to learn about the ruins so I highly recommend hiring one for the excursion.

This is a vast ruin. You can spend hours here, there is so much to see. It is high above Cusco and from the look out you can see the city of Cusco laid out before you. Impressive.
