  • Sacsayhuaman is one of the Inca constructions that most astonishes tourists who, according to the hypothesis, point out that it would have been a very important ceremonial center and not a fortress.
  • Now we go to Qenqo: O K`enko, which means "labyrinth", perhaps through the labyrinthine underground galleries or through the small canals carved into the rocks in a zigzag pattern.
  • PucaPucara: The name PucaPucara comes from Quechua voices puca, 'red', and pucara, 'fortress or defended place', meaning 'red fortress'; the rocks with which it has been built turn reddish with the twilight.
  • Tambomachay: This archaeological center in the time of the Incas was dedicated to the cult to the water and so that the head of the Inca Empire could rest. It consists of a series of aqueducts, canals and several waterfalls that run along the rocks. The surprising thing about this is that, from a main cascade, the Incas created two secondary waterfalls, which are exactly the same. That is, if one places two empty bottles, one in each waterfall, the two are filled at the same time.
