QORICANCHA:  Our first stop, call Qoricancha, quechua words, QORI = GOLD and CANCHA = TEMPLE, temple which at inka time was cover by gold, good architecture style, rocks which are fitting so exactly. Qoricancha now is accompanied by Santo Domingo convent.

Getting out of Cusco city we could find archaeological places:

 

TAMBOMACHAY: Tampumachay, a Inca site where is possible to find a fountains and aqueducts, fresh wáter spring, water running by channels with the same quantity all year long. Tampumachay also the beginning of the trails which go to Qollasuyo.

 

PUKA PUKARA: Red fortress, rustically architecture style but with nice view to Cusco valley.

 

Q’ENQO: Labyrinth or maze as well, look with many entrances and exits too. Semi-circular amphitheatre and huge rock which project shadow pointing to niches which could let us know, in which season we are.

 

SACSAYHUAMAN: Sacsayhuaman as known Sexy woman too, of curse call by that way for our Gringos friends, the pronunciations  make difficult to remember the right name reason by which once you are in Cusco, probably you will hear that name, no worries. They are not offering sexy things. SACSA WAMAN or SACSA HUMA as well, was at Inca time a HUACA which mean temple, this Inca building has three huge platforms which represent the Andean Trinity. Nowadays every JUNE 24th and the third Sunday of September, Inhabitants cusqueños accomplish the staging of the party of the sun and the wara's imposition respectively.

Don’t lose the chance to go there. Amazing architectural style probably once you see that, we will say “Human been couldn’t build this”.
