It's a big (ish) statue with spooky eyes :-) thats about it - it's behind a rather crude fence and there's no signage giving history or anything. But it's worth a trip up to look at it even if just for the stunning views down...More

The view is worth the trip. However, there is nothing else to explain the history or tell the strory. However, the surrounding area has many interesting Incan sites - worth the trip with a guide to explain things.

Cost 35 soles for a taxi to take 2 people from Avenida del Sol to this site, wait 30 minutes and drop us at the Plaza de Armas. Nice at night and the view is wonderfull. Worth the visit. Kills 2 hours tops.
