Being in Sacsayhuamán is touching the Cusco heart. It is located two kilometers from Cusco or “the imperial city”. This magnificent fortress stands imposingly to guard the ancient Inca capital against its towers. This amazing building, with some 3,000 hectares, has become one of the favorite destinations for tourists in the Cusco region.
It is a huge complex, which has different sections and multiple buildings. It has sacred lagoons and many ceremonial temples. In total, it has 33 places of archaeological interest.
It is, in few words, a beautiful corner pampered by locals and visitors. For the people of Cusco, it is a pride to share with tourists this archaeological park. In fact, it has been declared Cultural Heritage of the Nation in 1982.
Sacsayhuamán, tourist magnet
Cusco is not just any city; it is the Latin American capital of tourism. It has attractive iconic destinations, such as Machupicchu, Rainbow Mountain, or the Humantay lagoon. Sacsayhuamán, for its part, has become a very good reason to prefer Cusco during your vacations.
This magical and intriguing destination has varied native flora and fauna, among which the llamas and hawks stand out. The latter give their name to the proud construction, which cares for the natives as the falcons did with the Incas.
It is known that about 20,000 men were used to build the ceremonial (or military) fortress, for about 70 years. The techniques used for its construction are still a mystery. It was considered by the Inca Garcilaso de la Vega “as the greatest architectural work carried out by the Incas during their heyday.”
