Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very interesting history. This was purchased from the US in the 1800s and shipped with a statue of Geronimo on top. Seemed everyone though it was OK since it looked like a "native". It was not until later they replaced the statue. The statue is NOT of a specific person but rather a generic representation.

It was not visible when we visited due to maintanance works. It is on a busy plaza with a lot of traffic, far from the center, so not really worth going there

A statue dedicated to the warrior King Pachacuteq who built Cusco and expanded the Incan influence over the Sacred Valley. It sits on top of a tower on the roundabout on Avenue del Sol - not to be confused with the statue in the central plaza!!

Also included in the Boleto Touristico. This monument is dedicated to Cusco's native son, the Incan warrior King Pachacuteq who built Cusco and was instrumental in expanding the Incan empire. This monument stands 72 feet on top of a tower that you can climb within. There are seven levels to climb with information of the Incan culture at each level. Once at the top you get to see an inspiring Cusco with the Cathedral and Iglesia de la Compania de Jesus, prominent in the Plaza de Armas,.

In centre of Cusco Town Square is the great statute and a photo with same is a must. The scenery behind the statute in most directions are great to include in your photo.

Very little English signage, and even though my daughter does speak Spanish, the information is so confusing that we could not follow.

You can see this monument coming and going to the airport. It is in a main square. As you go back to the airport, look to the right for another one in the hills!

On our first walk into central Cusco we arrived at the Main Square, aka Plaza de Armas. This warrior chief is right there in the middle of the square. The detail is exquisite. Falling from the platform the fountain rains down, there are swan just below. Sea beings form the bottom of the fountain and base. Way cool.

Saw this huge statue when coming in from the airport and the taxi driver talked about it a bit. Came across it again when wandering around the city a couple of hours later, and was surprised to find a museum inside, when walking around the outside. It is 2 sol entry if you don't have the tourist ticket. Spend a bit of time going from floor to floor up the tower and discover a bit of history from the 15th century and more. Interesting displays with English translations. It was worth it going right to the top for the stunning views of the city. The statue towers above you as you walk around the top for 360 degree views. Located in a huge roundabout where San Martin meets Av 28 de Julio. Well worth an hour or two.
