Saqsayhuamán

Filed under: — Laurenz @ 10:45 pm

Saqsayhuamán fortress, near Cusco
Just outside Cuzco, the huge granite fortress built by the Incas is a truly magical place.
It is said that Cuzco and surroundings were designed in the shape of a Puma with the fortress of Saqsayhuamán (or “Saqsaywaman”) as the Pumas teeth.
The individual stones are already huge, but the scale of the whole site is absolutely breathtaking.
