I found it absolutly incredible with how the ancient civilizations created such masterpieces. You can spend hours walking around and admiring the area, the llamas and the amazing views of Cusco.

Seeing the size of the stones that have been used to face the hillside makes you realise what ingenious people the builders were. The site is quite large, and we only had time to look at a fairly small part of it as we visited...More

This is a must visit while in Cusco! A short 20 minute drive from Plaza del Armas. Everything else you have learned about Incan culture falls into place once you have experienced Sacsayhuaman . The proviso is..... you really need to experience this large site...More

This place is a truly amazing display of Incan rock-hewing technology. Some of these stones are truly huge! It's an awesome place.

Amazing stone structure ..how did the Incas manage to get the rocks to fit so perfectly together? Also many stones are not even straight but somehow other stones have been found to fit them.

We visited this site with our Contur travel guide and were amazed at the history and architecture of the Inca’s from hundreds of years ago. Many underlying symbols of animals are embedded into the walls as explained by our guide. This is a must see...More

These ruins were worth the visit. It's a fairly quick tour and not a lot of climbing. When you look off to the distance, you'll see what seems to be a replica of the "Christ the Redeemer" statue that is in Brazil.

Initially totally unaware of this large and mainly open and gently undulating historic site just above Cusco.Not so strenuous a visit as other historic Inca sites but great views over Cusco as well as the historic importance

If you are in Cuzco for turism, this is the first place you ought to visit. Not only beautiful it is full of energy. Temple of the sun. Actually if you have little time in Cuzco, this is the only place worth the visit.
