2 km north of Cuzco, this archaeological site stands out. It is assumed that it was built at the time of the Inca Pachacútec in the XV century, and was completed during the government of the Inca Huayna Cápac in the s. XVI. Surprising mastery of carving and assembly of huge stone blocks

Compared to Machu Picchu, it was an okay experience. Definitely a rip off in terms of the entrance fees we paid for it. Will recommend checking this place in the end after you have covered the rest in Cusco.

Inca ruins that overlook Cusco. A must see sight if you are in town. Great place to visit and again ask the question - How did they do this and what was it used for?!

It is mind boggling to think that an ancient culture could build such structures. Some of these stones weigh 128 tons. The slides across from Sacsayhuaman were closed when we were there unfortunately.

How the heck they do that ? Humongous stones, stacked so smoothly with no spaces between them and without machinery
Mind blowing

We only had a few hours here and, I have to say, it wasn't enough. The area is huge. We spent several hours walking around and I still didn't feel like we saw everything. Also, it's hard to do unless you're properly acclimated. I basically wheezed my way through this site, despite being in fairly good shape.
