See an authentic Incan site and get a sense of how the ancient culture revered water when you visit Tambomachay. As you approach the site you can see the still partially intact buildings. Walk through the small area and find the aqueducts, canals, and fountains left behind. The exact function of the site remains unclear, though prevailing opinion holds that it served as a military outpost, spa for the elite, or both. City tours usually show up in the afternoon, while mornings are less crowded. Plan your Tambomachay visit and explore what else you can see and do in Cusco using our Cusco itinerary planner.

The fountains at Tambomachay are still flowing after over 500 years. This stop on an important highway from the Inca period probably served as a resting place for the chasquis, the runners who served the communication needs of the nobility of that period. A short climb provides a great vantage point from which you can take an iconic photograph of the site.

Nice Inca site with fountains made out of natural sources. Great place to visit combined with 3 other sites. We paid 100 soles to a taxi driver driving us all afternoon and waiting for us at the gate of all sites we visited. We started here at Tambomachay, followed by Puca Pucará which is just across the street. Then we went to Q'inqu (Qenqo) and ended at Sacsaywaman.
inca ruins - good to visit if u enjoy history very crowded
Really pretty, lot of culture
