time well spent, too many tourists, but good gardens, nd a good perspective before you see the other sites

Hire a guide so you get more than just walking around looking at the Inca Wall part. The grounds are pretty, and there are some English translations in the church, but I would have gotten more out of it with a guide

We worked hard to get there on the 4 day Inca Trail...it was worth every minute and we appreciated it that much more. The final Gringo Challenge steps were a great way to fight to the finish.

this is a must visit in Cusco, you will see the magnificent ancient construction that the Incas build before the spaniels come and crumble all of it down not before took all the gold and kill many Indians, well it woth it to come an see what they all did and accomplish the (incas) using nothing more and nothing else that rudimentary tools like harder stone than the one they were using to build their own buildings and some others tools made out of alienations with other metals..overall its well worth it and a unique experience well worth it. Besides its included in your ticket to city tour! so just do it!

How amazing to learn how the Incas built walls that withstood major earthquakes and still exist today. There is some beautiful artwork too
