Puca Pucara means Red Fortress and it gets its name from the color of the stones from which it is built. We arrived there on a tour as the sun was going down and the place had sort of a red color to it. There are various reasons given for its existence. Some say it was a guard post while others say it was sort of a hotel for travelers. We saw this as part of a tour and had some time to walk around and explore the place.
