Tipon, Cusco

#8 of 45 in Sightseeing in Cusco
Ruin Historic Site
Admire the sophistication of Incan engineering when you travel to Tipon. The ancient civilization once used this temple complex to worship water, the element of central importance to their culture. Some also postulate that it served as a park and for irrigation purposes. Terraces, fountains, and aqueducts run throughout the complex with water still flowing through most of them, imparting a serene atmosphere. Take the Inca trails around the complex to get a good look at the structure. The attraction doesn't tend to get crowded, so you can enjoy your visit at your own pace.

  • The terraces of Tipon is a gem of hydraulic engineering of the Incas... the truth is that you can not believe what they have done for hundreds of years, and still today is used by agricultural populations to the foot of the mountain. Aside from this, Tipon is the center of the gastronomy of the Guinea pig (little pig India bah) If, as you read, they raise the piglets of india pair serve them made clay oven inserts of spices... The truth, ate it would say Martín Fierro, every creature that walks going to grill, but it was not to my liking... That Yes, here the dish pay half that of Cuzco...
