This was the culmination of our City Tour and Ruins. It was fascinating to see all of the aqueducts still fully functional, and as with other locations the impeccable stone work. There were several street vendors in the area as well as a few of...More

We were blown away by the architecture. How this place was constructed is still a mystery to archeologists today. I wish we had more time to explore! I recommend taking a guided tour!

We visited this site as part of our guided tour. It is pretty small but interesting. There is a little market there to buy local items.

The buildings are well assembled irregular polyhedra, the walls are inclined inward, presenting niches or niches large and spacious. In front of the main building, on the eastern side of the set, stands an incomplete circular keep at the top.

we were hiking from San Blas: unfortunately hiking ways are not marked and lead a long way along the street. But the site is beautiful to see.

A small area built with smaller rocks compared to Saqsaywaman. It showcases the Inkan ingenuity of hydrology. The aqueducts are still functional, water running out of the stone walls.

We stopped here on 1/2 day tour of Cusco. It was just ok - the walk to the ruin took longer than seeing the ruin itself, and the vendors along the path were really pushy. If you are looking to cut down on stops, this...More

Again the talk given here was too long so felt rushed when exploring, would be good if tour guide walked and talked pointing things out instead of standing still

A late afternoon visit on a short tour from Cusco and very worthwhile. Another example of Inca ingenuity. Set in the countryside with Families and animals creating a restful environment..

I would allow about 1.5 to 2 hours at this site unless you are really serious about exploring the ruins and need to see every detail. As this was the umpteenth Inca ruin on my itinerary I didn't see the need to spend a lot... More
