This ceremonial site is not far from Cusco and well worth the trip! The natural caverns interior has been carved with niches and platforms and what appears to be a throne! You can feel the deep sense of time and the power of the place...More

Q’enquo (which translates to zig-zag or maze in Quechua) is one of the largest Inca holy places (huacas) in the region. It’s located about 5 km (3 miles) from Cusco. You could walk here, but many people (like us) visit as part of a tour....More

This is quite a small site, but with quite a unique sight of an altar which allegedly was used for mummification or for sacrifices. I think it is good to visit this site as part of a city tour, as I did.

This site is amazing to see! There is an entrance to a cave where you can see a throne/sacrificing stone and some cool passageways through the rock. Highly recommended day trip from Cusco but best to combine it with the other sites nearby. You can...More

I was in a tour right there, our guide gave us a good info but the place was very busy, you cannot walk around, I recommend to go by your own and during the day.

There is not loads to see but it’s still worth stopping by. There were very few other people there at the same time and I enjoyed being in the cavern or crack in the rock that was used as a temple.

Fairly small site overlooking Cusco and included in the Boleto turistico, Q'enqo was the final Incan site that we stopped at during our tour. Less well kept than many of the places we stopped, it was fairly crowded the morning we visited. Walking into the...More

We visited Qenqo as a stop on the way back into Cusco and found it to be a bit underwhelming. We walked throughout the entire grounds in about 15-20 minutes. We received a brief explanation of what the site was used for, which was interesting,...More
