Another site worth visiting, established well before the Inca. We had a private guide that explained what they know, although it is only what the archeologists have been able to establish and a summation of that knowledge, but it gives you insight into the theories that they have deduced
We took a Cusco city bus for a few Soles and asked to be dropped off at Piquillacta. We almost had the place to ourselves. It was amazing to see the walls go on almost endlessly, and with such precision. I appreciated the informative pages that were posted.
Amazing location, only had about 1.5 hours there, could have spend three or four hours wandering around the ruins, looking at the archtecture and generally marvelling at the stone masonary and wondering about the people who use to live there.
I took a bus from Cusco to Pikillacta, and it was 2 Soles. The entrance cost is 70 soles for foreigners because it also includes a ticket to Tipon which is the agricultural marvel. I was there on a sunday around 10 am and there was no one there, it was inspiring and a little eerie even on a beautiful... 更多
On our last day of sightseeing near Cusco our guide chose this as one of the sites for us to see - and we were so glad he did! A much older site than Inca, the Waris had many sites all over the valleys near Cusco. This one was very large - probably at one time over 20,000 people lived... 更多
Piquillacta is divided across two locations. One as a reconstructed gateway to the quarry and the other larger location where the Boleto Turistico is checked. I was there without a guide and so did not get as much out of it as other locations such as Sacsaywaman. The site is extensive and shows the amount of work and workers needed... 更多
On a cooler day this may have been a different experience, but for me this was just a lot of walking in scorching heat to see pretty much a repeat of the same thing. There is no information, no map of the ruins, no signage and without a guide, you’re looking at endless stonewalls. Even reading up on it before... 更多
all we can say is to thank samuel cumpa the manager of this agency for having included us in the already formed group so we could not lose time waiting for a free place in another group. we enjoyed every hour of our tours with them and they transported us from place to place swiftly and securely...with a safe driver... 更多
We visited Piquillacta Archeological Park today. It is a non-Inka site. It was a major habitat for Wari people before Inka. It is a spread out site. Basically it was a small walled city used for administrative activities. The thing which surprised me most is the fact that the city was very well planned with wide, orthogonal streets. This site... 更多
