Itinerary Details

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Sacsayhuaman

Sacsayhuaman can be translated as ‘speckled falcon’ or ‘speckled head’. The last interpretation refers to the belief that the city of Cusco was set out in the form of a puma whose head was the hill of Sacsayhuaman. The origins are uncertain but the fortress is generally credited to the period of Inca Pachacutec (1450-1490), the Inca king who essentially founded the Inca Empire.

Duration: 2 hour
