    It is a beautiful Museum, ideal to learn the history of the great Pachacuteq and enjoy it in the family.

    It's worth appreciating the statue that sits in the middle of a square. The strokes are detailed and she is very well made. Must be assessed.

    When from Cusco international airport towards the city centre. It is a statue towering majestically in the middle of the road. Us welcomes tourists to Cusco.

    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.

    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
