  • The Pachacuteq monument is a tribute to the greatest representative Inka, which became for his fight a hero of the nation. The monument is seen when entering the city of Cusco and there is another statue in a fountain on the square of arms I could admire with ease.

  • It's a huge stone pedestal with statue of the main Inca ruler Pachacutec on top. But look, there are two statues. One of them is the monument made of stone like the Inca constructions with the statue on top and the other in the town square of Cusco and is a fountain. Both are worth a visit.

  • It's a huge stone pedestal that mimics the design of Inca stonework, with the statue of the Inca Pachacutec on top. Pachacutec was the main ruler. Many consider him the first inca indeed. He transformed Cusco in an empire and created a comprehensive code of laws to govern his vast domain. On the way from the airport to the Centre of Cusco were able to show the monument from inside the car. We don't think it's necessary to go down to take pictures as it sits on a busy Avenue. There is also a tribute to a fountain with a statue of Pachacutec located in town square of Cusco. It is in the square we love wonder her sitting there on the bench that wonderful place. The trick is that the statues are equal and that the square is quieter it becomes easier to admire and take pictures if you do not want to stop in the middle of the avenue for this.
