Not visible due to works
Oct 2019
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

Inca Warrior
Oct 2019
A statue dedicated to the warrior King Pachacuteq who built Cusco and expanded the Incan influence over the Sacred Valley. It sits on top of a tower on the roundabout on Avenue del Sol - not to be confused with the statue in the central plaza!!

To Cusco's Native Son
Nov 2018
Also included in the Boleto Touristico. This monument is dedicated to Cusco's native son, the Incan warrior King Pachacuteq who built Cusco and was instrumental in expanding the Incan empire. This monument stands 72 feet on top of a tower that you can climb within. There are seven levels to climb with information of the Incan culture at each level. Once at the top you get to see an inspiring Cusco with the Cathedral and Iglesia de la Compania de Jesus, prominent in the Plaza de Armas,.

Town square photo opportunity
Jun 2019 • Couples
In centre of Cusco Town Square is the great statute and a photo with same is a must. The scenery behind the statute in most directions are great to include in your photo.

Confusing
May 2019 • Couples
Very little English signage, and even though my daughter does speak Spanish, the information is so confusing that we could not follow.

Easy to find!

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!

Sweet centerpiece to the Main Square
May 2019 • Couples
On our first walk into central Cusco we arrived at the Main Square, aka Plaza de Armas. This warrior chief is right there in the middle of the square. The detail is exquisite. Falling from the platform the fountain rains down, there are swan just below. Sea beings form the bottom of the fountain and base. Way cool.

Interesting Inca history museum with stunning views from the top of the tower
May 2019 • Solo
Saw this huge statue when coming in from the airport and the taxi driver talked about it a bit. Came across it again when wandering around the city a couple of hours later, and was surprised to find a museum inside, when walking around the outside. It is 2 sol entry if you don't have the tourist ticket. Spend a bit of time going from floor to floor up the tower and discover a bit of history from the 15th century and more. Interesting displays with English translations. It was worth it going right to the top for the stunning views of the city. The statue towers above you as you walk around the top for 360 degree views. Located in a huge roundabout where San Martin meets Av 28 de Julio. Well worth an hour or two.

Great Inca Ruler
Oct 2018 • Friends
This monument to Pachacuteq was built in 1991. It is dedicated to the great Inca ruler who not only built Cusco but actually transformed the Inca Empire in the mid 1400’s. It is widely thought that Machu Picchu was built as his estate (although no one knows for certainty). A 37-foot statue of Pachacuteq weighing 22 tons sit on top of a 6-story tower that is a museum. The monument is located on a roundabout about a 20-minute walk from town heading towards the bus station and airport. I would have liked to enter for both the history and the views, but sadly we were out of time. If that interests you, hopefully you’ll plan better than me to allow for a visit here.
