Situated on top of a hill overlooking Cusco centre, this is a site of huge proportions showcasing the skill of the Inca builders and engineers to add to the natural surroundings. Marvel at the sheer human effort to move anyone of these huge rocks and...More

It could have gone either way for the Inca. A close call, but the Spanish won at Sacsayhuaman. Do some reading before you go. I recommend the White Rock for context before visiting.

Apart from some few stone there's nothing you can see. We spent 15min walking around while I was frozen and defrosted 100times! Really really boring with a waste of time and money.

Stunning site. Don't miss!! I visited this site at the end of my amazing 2 week stay in Peru and it was jaw dropping even after seeing Machu Picchu. You can take a cab or see it on a half day coach tour of Cusco...More

Nice views of Cusco when the weather is good. Interesting ruins and worth a visit if you're up that way. Tag it on to the Christo Blanco.

This place is good, got some interesting history, and is probably worth about 1-2 hours of exploration. Typically this is done with one of the very inexpensive "Cusco City Tours" most tourist agencies offer.

Very impressive Inkan creation. Nice walk up from the city, either by the streets from the main square or through stairs from San Belas and around White Jesus.

Plan to spend at least 2 hours to hike through the ruins. Read up on the history before you go, it can be done well without a tour guide.

Enjoyed a one hour guided tour with our five year old. Ruins were impressive. The best part was the slides on the side of the hill that you could go down. Small one for the little ones and big ones for the big kids. Made...More
