This site is covered by most tours but if you can get there yourself it's much better. Get there early too and you'll have the place to yourself. You need the boleto turstico to get in which is a bit of a scam but unavoidable. You can buy it here or in Cuzco's tourist office.

When the guide explained what I was looking at and walking around, I was most impressed.

This is an extraordinary place.

Located just above Cuzco it is an historical Inca site not to be missed!! The stone walls are incredible, but go with a guide so as not to miss anything.

This was our introduction to the local building styles, and fascinating it was. So many questions about how and why these sites originated, and fab views down towards the city. Also, strange how what are clearly former laval flows have remained bare rock.
