  • this is a good drive by the road was busy but lost to see in the town. you will have street vender come to you  more »
  • Like many of the museums included in the boleto turistico Museum is aging. Some letters of the English translations are more visible making it difficult to understand. However the monument from the outside is worth as well as the views at the top.

  • It is one of those monuments that are in the strange city that are few people refer to the character, it is worth watch it awhile and maybe some pictures.

  • 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.
