As I didn't have a guide what I gather is this is the equivalent of a spa. It's a small site with a pleasant walk up to it. I enjoyed the stroll around it, getting different angles for photos.

Another of the Inca sites near Cusco; not too far from Sacsayhuaman. This is much more serene with a lovely fountain visited after a short walk. Very much liked this visit.

I would allow about 1.5 to 2 hours at this site unless you are really serious about exploring the ruins and need to see every detail. As this was the umpteenth Inca ruin on my itinerary I didn't see the need to spend a lot... More
