Sacsayhuaman, Cusco Reviews
Great place to spend up to 3 hours if you have the time (or 1 hour or so if you don't). Makes for a good hike up from the city center, but make sure you're acclimatized to the altitude first. Otherwise take a taxi or bus. I'd recommend either going with a guide or just reading up on the history of the place first, as there is no signage. Besides the ruins there is an amazing spot that looks over all of Cusco.
Beautiful wall and viewpoint overlooking Cusco! There’s always so many alpacas roaming around, and the park/area is enormous, and guides are walking around if you’re interested in the tour. Can spend up to 2 hours there.
When you visit this site, there will be no doubt in your mind that the earth has been inhabited by another civilisation or aliens 😂 wow - it’s incredible to see these monstrous stones arranged perfectly and in ways that you can’t even comprehend. The alpacas add even more character to the mix
Another great place to learn a more about the Inca culture. We spent about 1 hour with the tour guide, but didn't go to the higher level. You get to let the alpacas.
Would have been interesting to see if it wasn't that expensive. You cannot buy individual entry tickets, only tickets for multiple sights together. You can still walk around it though. And it has an amazing history.
