Itinerary

QORICANCHA - SACSAYHUAMAN - QENQO - PUCA PUCCARA - TAMBOMACHAY

Tambomachay

We will start our great tour, picking you up from your hotel to take you to the entrance of the Qoricancha’s Temple, also known as Temple of the Sun, an imposing Inca construction, which according to history served as a base of connection between the 4 of them (Antisuyo, Contisuyo, Chinchaysuyo and Collasuyu), a place full of energy that still holds mysteries and legends impressive. It was later sacked and modified by the Spaniards, who built above the complex, the famous Convent of Santo Domingo, whose purpose was to show an authoritarian religious change for all the conquered Incas.

Then we will start the famous tour of 4 ruins. Starting with a visit to the famous fortress of Sacsayhuaman, which is located 2 km from the city of Cusco, an emblematic archaeological site for the use of huge stones in its construction, which was arranged with impressive precision. It is said that it may have had religious purposes due to the shape of its constructions and defensive because its strategic location shows a great view of the entire city of Cusco.

Our second archaeological site to visit is Qenqo, located 1.5 km from Sacsayhuaman, a center of Inca worship, as it has ceremonial and religious denotations of the Inca culture, in which we will observe carved rocks and small caves in which it is believed that rituals to the sun (main Inca deity) and payments to the earth were carried out.

The third Inca construction to visit in our Cusco City Tour is Puca Puccara is characterized as a fortress and a control post, for military purposes. Its size is not as large or elaborate, but it maintains its importance within the Inca context.

Our last but not least site to visit in the Cusco City Tour is Tambomachay, a place that today is known for its fountains and water channels that according to research, served as a spiritual center and purifying baths exclusive to the Inca elite.
