An important archaeological site, Q'enqo serves as one of the largest holy sites in the Cusco region. The name translates roughly to labyrinth, and that’s an apt way to describe this rock complex dating back to the Incan period. This ancient complex was built by Pachacuti Inka Yupanki, the eighth royal Inca king and the same man responsible for building Machu Picchu. Visit the site to explore the rock complex and learn more about the civilization. See the stone table where these people performed medical experiments and prepared their dead for mummification. To get all the inside information on this civilization and the site, hire a guide to walk the complex with you.

The community is beautiful and the xperience and story of the quechua civilization is uncanny
One of the amazing Inka's astronomical temples
Beautiful place. Very close to the city, you can walk from the city or you can take a bus and only cost 0.50 nuevos soles. ¡The pictures speak for itself!
Kind a cool. Definitely worth the walk from Sacsayhauman. It was fun walking through the tunnels between sections and seeing the impressive rock. The sacrificial history gives it a super creepy edge.
Beautiful, good morning adventure! You can catch public transport or a taxi and walk back to they city.
