Must visit ruin in cusco
Nov 2021 • Friends
A great ruin to visit. This was only about one mile from our Airbnb so we decided to walk it the first day we arrived. Not a good idea. Vertical climb with elevation headache was not good. We made it and was worth the trip but would recommend to take a cab up here. We bought the one week pass since we were planning to go to sacred valley so definitely worth it. View from atop is amazing and the ruins itself was pretty mind blowing… saw a heard of lamas hanging out too. A must visit in Cusco.

A must see Incan site in Cusco
Nov 2021 • Friends
If you want to see the best example of Incan Cusco and amazing views of Cusco, then this is the spot. It is a trek to get to (recommend taxi up to the site - about 20 soles - and walk back down to Cusco). The site is massive and yet another example of the amazing builders and architects that the Incas were. Certified tour guides are available at the front gate (look for their badge hanging around their necks). This is a cash only place so be sure you have soles!

The most amazing thing of this Inca fortress are the huge stones brought from far away quarries.
Spectacular place.

Huge stone constructions in Cusco
Oct 2021
Beautiful fortress made of huge stones, historical place, here also the party in honor of the sun god "Inti Raymi" takes place, it has a wonderful viewpoint of the entire city of Cusco.
It is recommended to do the visit on the city tour, you can also visit qenko, tambomachay and pucapucara, do not forget to buy your tourist ticket to enter these archaeological sites

Beautiful
Sep 2021 • Couples
Beautiful and historical. We walked on our own, but we wish we had booked a tour so we could learn the history of it. There were many people there. There is a bathroom and some vendors. It was 70 soles per person.

Leaves you in awe
Sep 2021
It is an impressive place. If you read a bit of the histoy of the place it is still hard to imagine what it was in its hayday seeing as even the ruins are great. The Inca craftsmanship is on full display and its breathtaking.
The ticket is abit expensive, but it is well worth it.

Historic and Breathtaking

Fascinating rock walls built by Inca people just outside of Cusco. Tour guides are available at the entrance, but you can do a self-guided tour as well. There is a breathtaking view of Cusco as well from this high vantage point.
