Awing
Sep. 2021
It is awing to see the craftsmanship from the incas. It is even more awing to see what was done by the Dominicans and how they covered up and destroyed history. Even though most was torn down by the Church, it is still impressive to try and imagine what this temple was in its hay day... if the ruins are that, then the temple must have been a sight to behold...

It is a palace of impressive architecture. In this temple, the Inca god was worshiped. Even now you can see how great its architecture and the peace feels when you are there.

Archaeological site of the Inca culture.

The beautiful archaeological site of the Inca culture, with the most perfect constructions. It is the testimony of a sacred Inca temple, with the best cut and assembled stones. A jewel of the past.

Temple of the sun god.
Dec. 2020
This site is open, admission has a price of 15 soles, although the entire route cannot be done because of the covid. You can do the tour on your own or pay a guide, which costs around 25-35 soles. Group area allowed up to 8 people, you must maintain social distancing and masks, here you can have an idea of the majesty of the Inca architecture, with its fine polishes used for the construction of its temples.
