As a third place on the City Tour that we will visit in the city of Cusco is the ceremonial center of Qenqo (labyrinth) that receives this name in the Quechua language for its short and zigzagging passages, this is a very special place. In the Andean worldview, this huaca was built to evoke Kaypacha, the ancient serpent or origin of life. In addition, the ancient Peruvians used this site to communicate with other deities such as the sun, the mountain, the moon, the earth and the stars. Everything is arranged in a secret and magical way: the channels, the labyrinths, the amphitheater and the sacrificial room.

The fourth stop on this City Tour will be in Puca Pucara, this fortress was a control point for those who entered and left the city of Cusco, this place is made up of large walls, terraces and stairways that were part of the defensive complex of the city ​​of Cusco in particular and the Inca Empire in general.

The fifth and last destination to visit to finish this City Tour is called Tambomachay (Quechua: tampu mach’ay, ‘place of rest), it consists of an archaeological site that was destined for the worship of water and for the potentate of the Inca Empire I could rest. It consists of a series of aqueducts, channels and several waterfalls that run through the rocks.
