    Stop At: Puka Pukara, Cusco Peru

    Puka pukara means "red fortress", because the calcareous stones with which it is built have acquired the reddish color of the land, very abundant in iron. It is claimed that he had the function of protecting Tambomach'ay, an important palace in the Inkario. But that in turn, due to its architectural disposition and the existence of fountains, aqueducts and multiple enclosures, was a "tambo" that is, a collective shelter that offered an inn and food to travelers, as well as the entourage that should accompany to the Inka on his retreat in Tambomach'ay.

    Stop At: Tambomachay, Cusco Peru

    Tambomachay, is located about 8 kms. To the north of Cusco and very close to the ruins of Puka Pukara, it is an archaeological site that was destined to the cult of water and so that the head of the Inca Empire could rest. This place is also called Baños del Inca. It consists of a series of aqueducts, canals and several waterfalls that run through the rocks. The surprising thing about this is that from a main waterfall, the Incas created 2 secondary waterfalls, which are exactly the same. That is, if one places two empty bottles, one in each waterfall, the 2 are filled at the same time.
