Саксайуаман (кечуа Saksaywaman, букв. — «сытый сокол, сытый ястреб»; в испанской транскрипции Sacsayhuaman) — цитадель, место дислокации гарнизона и храмовый комплекс в г. Куско (Перу). В плане Куско, напоминающем пуму, является как бы её зубами. Некоторые современные авторы отрицают крепостное предназначение сооружения.

This is a great place to go! It has amazingly big stones in its structure in a large complex built over 500 years ago. Once in Cusco, this is a must.

The place itself is very nice, however a little smaller than expected. Unfortunately this place too is overrun by tourists, so it's hard to get good pictures. However it's a must visit in the Cusco region and in my opinion one of he most interested sites. Make sure that you go with a good guide, because there's a lot of interesting information about the place.

A neat park. You can go through it quickly in an HR or take your time and spend an afternoon. Lots of photo ops and great views of Cusco.

Really very impressive sight - note the absolutely gigantic rocks, arranged in lightning bolt. Really makes you ponder what the Incas could have accomplished had they a few hundred more years to go on before the Spanish arrived. This is bare bones so likely better seen with a guide. It is a great preview on the way to Manchu picchu!

Amazing site. A must if you are in Cusco and have 2 hours during the day. So impressive how the ancients build all those colossal walls, temples, water reservatories, etc. It gives a fantastic new perspective on the Inca's society and worship. Get a guide, from 30-50 soles, in order to fully appreciate and understand what you will see.

Historic ruins, relaxed park, alpacas and llamas roaming. Hire a native guide for around 50 sol to get a better understanding of the history and influence on local culture.

Amazing. What can I say that has not already been said before? The amount of time and craftsmanship put into forming that impressive structure is simply stunning. The Incans were master stonemasons and monument builders. The fact that they built this structure at over 11,000 ft in elevation is unreal. Just walking around the area will get you winded. Impressive.

The most impressive and important archaeological sites in Cuzco. Great examples of Inca fitted stone work. You need to go.
Eva Brandan | апр. 15, 2018
Amazing experience! It was wonderful seeing the ruins and learning about more Incan history. I definitely recommend this destination!

Wow 70 sols to see some big rocks that look alot bigger in pictures than in real life. I was not overly impressed with the size of the ruins it's just way too expensive for what it is.. You can have the view from top for free if you walk on the other side as for the ruins it's just a major tourist trap
Harvey Koffman | май 15, 2018
Extensive ruins with enough intact walls to be very impressed. The triple zigzag walls are the teeth of the puma's head (Saqsaywaman is the in the shape of a puma's head). Beautiful views

Huge rock blocks and giant walls of one of the most iconic Inca strongholds. Hire a guide, available at the entrance. In therms of building technology, perhaps the South American equivalent of Egyptian pyramids.After visit, think that only 20% of the ancient Inca fortress is, today, conserved on this site. Spanish conquerors dismantled 80% of it and used the stones to build other buildings in Cusco and surroundings.Unfortunately, another evidence, how conquering civilizations are sometimes more barbaric than the conquered ones...
Girish HN | май 23, 2018
Saqsaywaman - Sounds like "Sexy-woman" and it is indeed...there is a flat space available between the rocks...it gives a feeling of a football stadium...for my surprise got to know that in the past a local football team conducted practice sessions for the players to acclimatize with high altitude low oxygen condition...but now it is strictly open for tourism...

Awesome landmark was supposedly constructed as the head of the puma completing the puma shape which confirms the city of Cusco. Great views of the city from here as well
Tomás Harmon | июль 9, 2018
Awesome site! If you have time, explore the inside of the temple ruins. It's a very easy drive from the main square in Cusco and the stones the Inca used here are worth the trip.
Marina Wang | июнь 28, 2018
Beautiful ruins so close to Cusco! We got a private tour that drove us up and found that having a guide helped us understand what we were looking at. But people also taxi or even walk up. Be sure to visit the slide in the second half and check out the little natural tunnel.
Ryley Esler | июль 4, 2018
Very lovely place. Alpacas and ruins both lovely. Easy walk from Cusco town square! It is quite busy with tourists and people selling things.
Karen Radley | июнь 26, 2018
This place is huge. Could just visualize the people bringing their king in for ceremonies/ rituals. The stones are enormous and so difficult to imagine them hauling them here to build this place. The people of Cusco were practicing for their yearly festival. You could sit up on top and watch and the acoustics of the ruins were amazing! The terraces are so interesting. My kids loved the natural rock slide and went down several times. The jaguar temple was also very interesting seeing the stonework but also the sacrificial alter. If you're in cusco this is a must see!

Great place to spend up to 3 hours if you have the time (or 1 hour or so if you don't). Makes for a good hike up from the city center, but make sure you're acclimatized to the altitude first. Otherwise take a taxi or bus. I'd recommend either going with a guide or just reading up on the history of the place first, as there is no signage. Besides the ruins there is an amazing spot that looks over all of Cusco.
Susan Yang | авг. 9, 2018
Beautiful wall and viewpoint overlooking Cusco! There’s always so many alpacas roaming around, and the park/area is enormous, and guides are walking around if you’re interested in the tour. Can spend up to 2 hours there.
David M | авг. 6, 2018
When you visit this site, there will be no doubt in your mind that the earth has been inhabited by another civilisation or aliens 😂 wow - it’s incredible to see these monstrous stones arranged perfectly and in ways that you can’t even comprehend. The alpacas add even more character to the mix
Angie Pineiro | авг. 11, 2018
Another great place to learn a more about the Inca culture. We spent about 1 hour with the tour guide, but didn't go to the higher level. You get to let the alpacas.
Mihaela M | июль 15, 2018
Would have been interesting to see if it wasn't that expensive. You cannot buy individual entry tickets, only tickets for multiple sights together. You can still walk around it though. And it has an amazing history.
