Peru Things to Do: 659 reviews and 852 photos


Saqsayhuaman (commonly referred to as 'Sexy Women' by many tourists; if you can't pronounce the name just say this and a taxi driver will take you there) is a beautiful Incaic temple that lies on a hill overlooking Cusco. The site has one of the best Incaic ruins I have seen. The temple was built with massive stones fit into perfection at different angles. Some of the stones weigh over 100 tons. Before heading downhill towards Cusco, I stopped on top of the hill to see the town. I got an excellent view of the Plaza de Armas.

Address: Saqsayhuaman
