Sacsayhuamán

Recommended
The amazing remains of Sacsayhuamán stand on top of a hillside overlooking Cuzco: huge blocks of stone, some of which weigh several hundred tons, perfectly embedded one into the other, form what look like ramparts. What was the site's purpose? Defensive, religious, star gazing - who knows? Every year on June 24, it is the venue of the Incan Inti Rayni folklore festival in celebration of the sun.
