This is usually bundled in as part of a city tour of 4-5 sites around Cusco. As part of that, it is definitely worth it. Very interesting but you are literally through it in 45 seconds so I wouldn't do a one-off to go see...More

If you take a tour of the ancient sites around Cusco, you don't want to miss this one. It may be small, but it's history is huge and it's ritualistic culture is very interesting. You will definitely want a guide who can lead you around...More

This is a smallish Inca site on the outskirts of Cusco with an interesting cave within which are carved altars on which the, very occasional, human sacrifices were conducted. Not something you will see every day, interesting, well presented. Like so many Inca sites, you...More

It is critical to have a knowledgeable guide to explain the significance of this site. It is the major location outside Cusco where funeral rituals and mummification was performed on the Inca nobility. The carvings depict the levels of the Inca Universe. It is also...More

I did not find this site interesting. Of course it is mandatory to go with a guide, if you want to understand something. The stone carves are worth some photos

A smaller site just outside of Cusco with interesting altars carved into living rock. Well worth the effort if you are already bagging Boleto de Touristico sites.

We did four ruins one morning and Q'enqo was the third. It's a small place but quite different to the others. Circular with zig-zag paths/walkways cut into the stone. There's a 'ceremonial' alcove too which is interesting. It doesn't take too long to see the...More
