It is an archeological place that with a good guide is an outstanding experience! The imperial inca megalithic structure is one of a kind!

Lovely views of the city of Cusco from up here, nice walks. It is well worth the short taxi ride (15 mins). The stones used for these buildings are beyond belief.

This is a massive archaeological site that required lots of walking. Very large rock terracing - no cement - to create an enormously interesting place - of worship? Living? Temple? Wonderful too for picnics and an annual festival attracting thousands of people.

I believe at the bottom of one entrance there is someone checking your boletas. I am not quite sure that it would be considered a lost and found area. So sorry I couldn’t be of more help but I didn’t see any information... More
