Not a large site but interesting with the water flow, has some very nice stonework. If you want to do a bit of hiking, just follow the river upstream and there are terraces and other small constructions scattered around the hillsides. Access it with the Boleto Turistico ticket that can be purchased in cusco, S/. 130 but gives access to... 更多
If you are doing a tour of the nearby ruins to cusco, this is probably on the list. This is one of the smaller sites but still interesting to make the stop. It doesnt take but about 10 minutes to walk to the top of the site. One of the few spots in these ruins where you will will likely... 更多
It is a beautiful water fountain from the inca times, it is close to Sacsayuman which an amazing inca palace remains most of destroyed by Spanish Inquisition . It is nice place to go in a sunny day to appreciate the view of Cusco city
This place is like nowhere else I have ever been. The sheer enormity of the rock is awe inspiring. Lots of walking and climbing so make sure you're up for it and obvo wear comfortable shoes. Possible to walk back to cusco after and the route is very special so don't miss that either.
Tambomachay is a very interesting example of Inka engineering prowess. Presented as eternal fountains, the site, which is not huge, offers a view of how the Inka's worked hydrological engineering and were able to build ever lasting fountains in a beautiful mountain setting. Well worth the trip and Tambomachay is also a part of Sacsayhuaman so you should actually visit... 更多
Nice but small site outside of Cusco. The ruins are small but it is a fair walk up to them. The spring waters are still running . I just rated this average because of the other magnificent sites in the area.
When I visited this place, I didn't realize that what it was until I read more about it that night. Kind of interesting area, one of several places on the Tourist Ticket.
A small, but interesting Incan site near Cusco. A bit of a walk from the parking lot, but interesting to see what has been found here. One of the highest places above Cusco - the sign there says 12,392 feet!
This was the "Kings Retreat" back when the Incas were alive. Make sure you book this trip with a tour guide so he can provide history on this area. It also makes it easier to have a guide, so he can worry about the transportation getting you to this wonderful place.
