Piquillacta, Cusco
(4.4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Step inside pre-Incan Peru at Piquillacta, which has stood in this spot for almost 15 centuries. Get a glimpse of ancient agricultural practices at the ruins of an irrigation system, which includes a stretch of aqueducts. Stand in the streets and appreciate the tall walls that still guard the long-abandoned walkways. With so much to explore, the site remains a great place for both children and adults interested in a bit of Peruvian history. Take a look at our Cusco vacation route planner to schedule your visit to Piquillacta and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Visit with a group from Cusco (Valle Sur circuit). Very interesting site built by the Huari in the pre-Inca period.

  • I found very interesting the visit to this ruin the wari people, because this is a people before the incas eventually becomes a bit different from everything that is done in cusco

  • This archeological site is a place you have to know! Far from Cusco.
  • Huge site, kilometres wide, a must see!
  • A must
  • Large irrigation system.
