This is one of the smaller of the Inka ruins in the area overlooking Cusco. This is good for a fill in if needed and can be done in 3/4's of an hour. Not much left of this site or... read more

We visited this as part of a wider tour, and it was interesting but not the best part of the day. As part of the suite of Inka remains, it was good, and the path down into the sacrificial area was very Indiana Jones, but not as interesting as other Inka sites we visited. Outstanding views, as all around this... More

This site was a ceremonial site for the elite Incas, It including the alter and the huge rock outside were covered in gold till the conquest. The place is still neat, the tunnel to the ceremonial alter is a classic, and the masonry work is some of the best.

This was one of the more unique sacred sites, as many of the other small ones started to blend together in memory. It has a giant cave with a sacrificial ritual stone. Generally included in the 20 sole city tour, worth seeing, close to Saqsayhuaman.

This is one of the Incan ruins high above the city of Cusco. It contains passageways that lead to where animals were sacrificed to the gods. A very interesting site, and not as physically challenging as some of the Incan sites are.

I remember my father and I enter into the church and we started walking through dry mud paths! Everything was so... More

It is a small site, with nothing very spectacular. It is not worth going there just for that, but you can walk from Sakseyhuaman and see it at the same time.

Very interesting site with a cave where sacrificial rites were performed by the Inkas. If you're going up high over Cusco to visit Sacsayhuaman, this site is very easy to combine with it. Recommended.

Sacred place for mummifying bodies and an altar - interesting to go through a cave - worth stopping if passing.

This are small attractions part of the half day Cuzco tour. Individually don't tell you much but put together into this tour gave you a flavour of how advanced the Inca's were
