This site was overlooking Cusco; a car was nice to get there, though I suppose not necessary there were a few people looking like they were walking up the winding road. Nice walking trails and also access to the Jesus statue.

I found it absolutly incredible with how the ancient civilizations created such masterpieces. You can spend hours walking around and admiring the area, the llamas and the amazing views of Cusco.

This is a must visit while in Cusco! A short 20 minute drive from Plaza del Armas. Everything else you have learned about Incan culture falls into place once you have experienced Sacsayhuaman . The proviso is..... you really need to experience this large site...More
