5.- Puka pukara

Puka Pukara means “red fortress” because the calcareous stones with which is built have acquired the reddish color of the ground, very rich in iron. It is argued that had the function of protecting Tambomach’ay, an important palace in the Inkario. But that in turn, for its architectural layout and the existence of sources, aqueducts and multiple enclosures, it was a “tambo” ie a collective lodge offering inn and food to travelers, like the delegation that was to accompany the Inka in his retirement in Tambomach’ay.

6.- Tambomachay

Tambomachay, it is located about 8 kms. north of Cusco and close to the ruins of Puka Pucara, is an archaeological site that was intended for worship of water and the head of the Inca empire could rest. This place is also called Inca Baths. It consists of a series of aqueducts, canals and several waterfalls that run through the rocks. The amazing thing about this is that a main waterfall, the Incas created 2 secondary waterfalls, which are exactly alike. That is, if one places two empty bottles, one in each cascade, 2 are filled simultaneously.
