Given the desperate cavalry charge by which the Spaniards triumphed here, one can but speculate about how Peruvian history could have turned out differently. This is a big site and the value of a good guide should not be underestimated.

More Incan skills on display. Great place to visit in the morning. We were there for 1.5 hours with a guide and found that to be enough time to wander the area.

Great tour and guide! Learned so much about the history of Peru, definitely worth touring the city and visiting multiple sites.

Enjoyed the visit. Looted over the years with only the largest structures and rocks remain. Stones from here used to build colonial houses and buildings in Cusco. An amazing example of Incan architecture located not far from Cusco (15 to 30 mins by bus). Worth...More

The views of the city from this site are gorgeous! It's a very cool ruin and less crowded than many other sites so you can really explore it. If you'll be walking to the site from the city, be prepared for an all uphill walk...More

Sacsayhuamen is an Inca ruin on a hill overlooking Cusco. An amazing ruin, built as a fortress. Worth the trip as the views of Cusco are amazing. Don't forget to visit the White Christ Statue.

I must admit I am a bit bias when we talk about pre-Colombian architecture as I am a big fan, but this Inca ceremonial site is magnificent in whichever way you want to look at it. Size, location, construction, design and materials to build it....More
