This fascinating small ruin is close to Cusco on the road to Sacsayhuaman. The purpose of the site is unclear although the construction led the Spanish to believe it was an amphitheatre. The main feature is a huge boulder carved out with paths, niches and possible altars - hence the name Q'enqo - labyrinth or zig zag.

Directions: About 1 kilometre from Sacsayhuaman
