It's quite away from road and downtown. You should take a taxi from downtown hotel. It will take about 20 min to get there from the downtown and to walk another 20 ~ 30 min from the gate.

I would not make a special trip to see the statue; it is a major letdown if you have seen Christ the Redeemer in Rio. It is close to Sacsayhuaman and the view there is very similar I would skip this stop if on a...More

We went up by UBER and walked down through San Blas. The statue is cool and the view is worth the trip. The walk back down to town along the stream was easy.

The view is worth the trip. However, there is nothing else to explain the history or tell the strory. However, the surrounding area has many interesting Incan sites - worth the trip with a guide to explain things.
