  • The monument is 20 minutes walking apace from the historic center of Cusco. It is a nice walk, at a time when there is a great boulevard where many people walking, walk, go by bicycle. The monument itself is not great, although the view from the top is very nice. The entrance is within the full "tourist ticket".

  • Anything dealing with Pachacuti is always interresting. This has been the case as we visited this tower in Cusco. Bit of a walk from the Place d'Armes but worth it to get better context of what he did...  more »
  • It is present in all inca city was the ninth inca and driving force of the whole empire. Reported to have very severe and strict in applying laws and sanctions with punishments who deserved it.

  • It's a nice walk from here to the plaza del armas. You see a lot of the city. However, every time I went to Monumento Inca Pachacutec it was closed even though the hours on the google said it was open. Not sure if it was holiday or what? So I couldn't go inside it and get a view from the top :(
  • If your by the monument you might as well walk in since it's included in the tourist ticket. The museum is ok, but I mainly stopped by to see the views from the top.
  • Beautiful spot on the way in to Cusco from the airport. It's lovely at dawn
  • Great views around Cisco from the top.
  • 被安地斯山脈環繞,是古老的印加帝國的搖籃。庫斯科是庫斯科大區及庫斯科省的首府。 庫斯科是一個高海拔城市,海拔有3400公尺,它的名字在秘魯當地話中意味著「肚臍」大地之臍庫斯科
