So in the first passing on the way to the hotel we did not really take in just what we were walking through. A day later when going to the temple of the sun we checked it out again...what a shame the stones could not be where they should be,well, that could be said for many taken from the "Sexywoman"...

Bit difficult to find and even when you're walking down it you don't realize how special the place is. Beautiful spot, amazing design and so much history. Worth tracking it down!

This street is a classic illustration of Inka walls on both sides. The Compania (Jesuit church) is built over one side, but many of the orginal stones remain. This is certainly worth a stoll.

I love this street, by night or day, with the magnificent inca walls at your right and at your left. Sometimes musicians are playing their flutes while you walk by. Maybe the smell is not that nice at some parts but just walking by feels so nice that it really does not matters. Maybe one the few Inca streets in... More
