  • Monument dedicated to the Sapa Inca Pachacuteq who was one of the most important heads incas. Revolutionized the teaching, built Machu Pichu, Saqsayhuaman, etc. You will hear a lot about him in Cusco.

  • Big beautiful monument to the great emperor. It is impossible not to notice. It is difficult to understand what the modern Peruvian enjoyed sources as historians, but they do not worship the great cu. The monument. Looks proportionally high pedestal.

  • 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.
  • The monument is impressive, try to find words to describe it is a very difficult task, perhaps the word that best sums up the monument is: impressive; an excellent meeting place to frequent with friends or family, if you visit Cuzco this monument is a place that you must visit.
