Overview

About two- and a-half hours by car from Cusco, this Inca town has maintained the integrity of its design. Next to the plaza Hanan Huacaypata, there are 15 blocks with large houses built upon Inca fields of wrought stone. Within the skirt of the mountain that dominates the town, you'll find the buildings of the Temple of the Sun, the Incahuatana and the "Baths de la Nusta." The locals guide the "Ancestral Routes" and will show you a living Inca city where one can appreciate the knowledge of the hydraulics and agronomy of both old and present inhabitants. There are also restaurants, hotels, horseback riding back and mountain biking opportunities.
