  • It is a beautiful sculpture that is in the center of the plaza de armas, with free access, nearby you can find local photographers who for some soles take you a "professional" photo, to be outdoors you can at that point see the 4 corners of the main square and the surrounding buildings (Caterdral, portals, etc.)

  • 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.
  • It pays to know the history of this great leader, and at the end there is an incredible view
