Located four kilometers northeast of the city of Cusco, it holds the archaeological sites of Q’enqo Grande and Q’enqo Chico.

3. Puka Pukara:
Puka pukara means “red fort”, because the calcareous stones with which it is built have acquired the reddish coloration of the terrain, very abundant in iron. It is alleged that this site had the function of guarding Tambomach’ay, an important palace in the Inca Empire. at the same time thanks to his architectural layout and the existence of fountains, aqueducts and multiple enclosures, for that reason also was considered a “tambo” that is, a collective shelter that offered inn and food to travelers, also provides warriors guards to the Inca in his retirement of Tambomach’ay.

This place is also called bath of the inca. It consists of a series of aqueducts, canals and several waterfalls that run along the rocks. The surprising thing about this is that from a main waterfall, the Incas created 2 secondary waterfalls, which are exactly the same. That is, if one places two empty bottles, one in each waterfall, the 2 are filled at the same time.
