Overview

This archaeological center is a mixture of pre-Inca and Inca construction, therefore, it was built by the Qanchi ethnic group and in the time of the Incas, it was probably built in the period of government of the Inca Wayna Khápaq considered as a fortress.

Waqrapukara Cusco is a new tourist attraction whose mysteries have not yet been deciphered and that allows a magnificent view of the night sky, populated with constellations, planets, and stars of enormous value in the Inca worldview; Fortress, sanctuary, astronomical observatory are the interpretations of this enigmatic monument of classic Inca architecture that is located at 4,300 meters above sea level, in the abysses of the Apurímac river canyon, south of the city of Cusco.
