  • KORICANCHA

    An important temple during the Inca period. During th Spanish conquest the Church of Santo Domingo was built on top of the Inca walls, which is present today.

  • SACSAYHUAMAN

    It is a masterpiece of singular structure, this construction is attributed to the Incas of the last dynasties, it is located next to the Temple of San Cristobal or Qolcampata, in the high part of the city.

  • QENQO

    Located one kilometre away from Sacsayhuaman, it is believed to be ceremonial centre. A giant monolith can be seen in the central part, which is surrounded by a singular wall with 19 niches, where offerings were placed. In the lower part there is the mortuary room, which was used perhaps was a place to embalm bodies or make sacrifices that were dedicated to their deities.

  • PUCA PUCARA

    Located 7 km northeast of the city on the road that leads to Pisac (30 minutes by car and 2 hours by foot). It is an archaeological site whose Quechua name means "red fortress" due to the colour of the rocks when the twilight is reflected on them. Its rustic construction is made up of alleys, houses and patios.

  • TAMBOMACHAY

    Located 8 km from the city of Cusco, it was a centre of rest and relaxation for the Inca and the nobility, especially on days when the "Chacu" was performed, which consisted of surrounding a large area and capturing animals, especially camelids, that were to be sheared. It has three platforms with several niches and channels through which water flows.

  • End

    We will return to Cusco at approximately 6:30 p.m. where you will be dropped off close to the Plaza des Armas.
