The construction is typical of Inca architecture, although it is the place where this technique was used on a larger scale. The rock was roughly cut in the quarry with the approximate shape required. Then it was dragged with ropes by hundreds of men to the place of construction, where it was given the definitive carving. The ropes used were so impressive that they were mentioned by the Spanish conquistador Diego de Trujillo in 1571 after inspecting a room full of construction material.
The velvety softness of the stone stands out in these formations. There are figures designed on stones and rocks, entrances to underground tunnels or chicanes, amphitheaters, ritual constructions, probably related to the cult of water. This site played an important role in Inca ritual activities.
11:00am the White Christ over the City.
The work was executed by the local sculptor and filmmaker, Francisco Olazo Allende, among whose accomplishments are also the sculptures of the arch of Santa Clara that is located in the Plaza San Francisco of Cusco.
In a very handmade way, with local labor, the figure of Christ was taking shape and the plaster gave it its white color that shines against the Andean sky. The figure of the White Christ of Cusco was built in 1945, and donated by the Palestinian Arab colony to Cusco.
