This was a perfect ruin for me to go to on my first day in Cuzco. I was still getting used to the altitude and this was an easy place to walk around with minimal ups and downs that helped me get used to hiking around ruins at altitude. I found the scenery to be breathtaking and serene...and I even found a guide to give me a little interesting history about the place, especially the tombs. Make sure you do this BEFORE Machu Picchu though, because you will be spoiled by MP and Sacsayhuaman won't hold a candle to it.

Sacsayhuaman is a wonderful place to take in the construction process of an Inca site. A herd of Alpacas were grazing and hawks were hunting among the terraced landscape. Great photo opportunity.

A large site that can be easily accessed by a short walk from Cusco.
Whilst at this site it is worth visiting, again a short walk, the White Christ statue which is on a hill overlooking the Sacsayhuaman site.

Overlooking the town of Cusco, this is a small Inca site that is well worth a visit. We'd recommend a taxi up and then walking back down to the town.
