Ingapirca Ruins, Ingapirca
(4.3/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Admire stunning feats of architecture at Ingapirca Ruins, the largest known Inca ruins in Ecuador. Built without mortar, as many Inca settlements were, the city's buildings have stayed upright throughout the centuries thanks to a perfectly interlocking network of stones. In fact, the city symbolizes something even more notable: the peaceful co-existence of the Inca and the indigenous Cañari people on the land. While the two cultures didn't really integrate, they maintained an amicable enough relationship, allowing each other to remain autonomous. Take a guided tour to learn more about the ruins, including the sun temple and observatory. Plan to see Ingapirca Ruins and other attractions that appeal to you using our Ingapirca trip generator.

  • It's worth worth the hour and a half from the center of Cuenca! Place the history of the Organization and the price is excellent! Tour guide included, expect to get maximum 10-15 min and walk with guide! You have time to hear the story quiet walk and take pictures!

  • This Inca discovered by the French La Condamine site is worth a visit because it was dedicated to the God "Sun" important divinity of the Incas. This temple of the Sun also served as an astronomical observatory.

  • A little more than two hours of Cuenca, a very nice Canary first site (sorry, I can't make the sign on the n), then invested by the incas.
