Inca Fortress

This Inca Fortress is another amazing piece of architecture near Cusco. It is mind boggling how they were able to build this.

This is the site of an Inca fortress. It was a wonder to see. How did the Incas manage to place these huge but perfectly interlocked stones together without computers or machines!?!
