Arrival in the city of Cusco and transfer from the airport to the Hotel, free morning. They are picked up from your hotel between 10:00 hrs. and 13: 20hrs. You will have a guided tour through the center of the city of Cusco, visit the Temple of the Sun Qoricancha- and then go out to visit the ruins of Sacsayhuaman, Qenqo, Puca Pucara and Tambomachay, returning to the city between 18:30 hrs.
1.– The Qoricancha
Then we visit the Qoricancha temple, the highest expression of Inca architecture and engineering. The Temple of the Sun or Qoricancha, is also currently the Convent of Santo Domingo.
The impressive fortress of Sacsayhuaman is strategically built on a hill from where you can see all of Cusco. It is famous for its huge carved stones, some of which are 9 meters or 30 feet high and weigh more than 350 tons.
Located four kilometers northeast of the city of Cusco, it has the archaeological groups of Qenqo Grande and Qenqo Chico. Etymologically, it means labyrinth or zigzag, served a purely religious function, being on the outside a semicircular amphitheater with trapezoidal niches and a monolith that simulates a puma which is approximately six meters.
5.- Puka pukara
Puka pukara means “red fortress”, because the calcareous stones with which it is built have acquired the reddish coloration of the terrain, very abundant in iron. It is alleged that it had the function of protecting Tambomachay, an important palace in the Incario. But that, in turn, for its architectural layout and the existence of fountains, aqueducts and multiple enclosures, was a “tambo” that is, a collective shelter that offered inn and food to travelers, as well as the entourage that was to accompany to the Inca in his retirement in Tambomachay.
Tambomachay, is located about 8 kms. North of Cusco and very close to the ruins of Puka Pukara, it is an archaeological site that was dedicated to the worship of water and so that the head of the Inca Empire could rest. This place is also called Baños del Inca. 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 waterfall, the Incas created 2 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.
