Very interesting history. This was purchased from the US in the 1800s and shipped with a statue of Geronimo on top. Seemed everyone though it was OK since it looked like a "native". It was not until later they replaced the statue. The statue is NOT of a specific person but rather a generic representation.

The monument of the great Inca Pachacuteq is very interesting attraction, and it was included in our Cusco tourist /s ticket. I felt that the monument has the meaning to Peruvians somewhat similar to the Statue of Liberty meaning to Americans.

You can see this monument coming and going to the airport. It is in a main square. As you go back to the airport, look to the right for another one in the hills!

It was not visible when we visited due to maintanance works. It is on a busy plaza with a lot of traffic, far from the center, so not really worth going there

Very little English signage, and even though my daughter does speak Spanish, the information is so confusing that we could not follow.

I visited on the final day of my tourist ticket’s eligibility, having carefully planned everything out, and it was a nice finale. I felt like I actually learnt some history that I hadn’t heard about before while also not being bombarded by it. A nice statue and nice views from the top of the tower. It’s near the bus station so you can visit when buying your ticket onwards. A lot of other reviewers seem to have been hassled by traders there but that didn’t happen to me,

Nice Monument to see while walking around, would not pay to see. There are some nice restaurants in the area, "Tanta" Try the Maddok Ceres Chocolate Ale.
The monument is located in the middle of a busy intersection.

Pachacuteq tower in Cusco. This Pachacuteq Monument (Monumento Pachacuteq) sits on a roundabout circle at Avenida del Sol, in the city of Cusco. This monument is actually a six story high tower museum dedicated to the great Inca Pachacuteq Yupanki. Also known as Pachacuti Inca Yupanqui or Pachakutiq Inka Yupanki (Quechua) he was the ninth Sapa Inca in the 1438–1471/1472 of the Kingdom of Cusco which he then eventually transformed into the Inca Empire. The sculpture was created by this Cusqueñan sculptor Fausto Espinoza Farfán. The sculpture stands at 11.5 meters or 37.7ft tall and weighs approximately 22 tons. The monument was planned to resemble the figure of a person of Andean build with a mature face expressing strength and wisdom. They say his arms stretch out towards the north-east and north-west as if pointing to the heart of the Imperial Cusco. They used 20 tons of silicon bronze to form approximately 1,100 different pieces, which they were put together like a jigsaw puzzle. This statue is designed to last 5,000 years in outdoor weather conditions. The large figure was erected in 1991. Plenty to see and learn more inside of the tower museum. Located right in the middle of this roundabout, and surrounded by cars going in all different directions, just make sure you are extremely careful in crossing the street with that crazy traffic!!

When you study the achievements of Pachacuteq in detail and the level of brilliance in all aspects of his reign regarding expansion of the empire, architecture, agriculture and Religion, I can say than in my opinion he is one of the most impressive rulers in the history of the world, do it is fitting to hace such a nice recognition in the form of a statue in a tower in the middle of the Avenue of the sun the most important in Cuzco

With so many places worth visiting, Pachacuteq isn't worth going out of way to reach, but luckily as you drive around Cusco you'll eventually come upon him and is well worth a short stop for a few pics.
