Tambo-machay (Inca baths) is located at 8km from the city of Cusco , at 3700 meters above the sea level, is also known as the Cavern Tambo (storage).
The name comes from the Quechua words Tampu, which means place or storage, and Machay, which means rest, is a splendid place.
It consists of a series of aqueducts, canals and waterfalls that run through the terraced rocks, but the function of the site is uncertain.
A ceremony for the water took place there, and thank for his precious gifts like make the flowers grow, and giving life to all creatures in the universe.
Left the ruins of Tambomachay we are walking to Puka Pucara, it is also an archaeological site of the Inca era.
Large fortress, Puka Pucara is located next to Tambomachay. Its name means red fortress and is taken from the red granite that was used in its construction.
This fortress is made of large walls, terraces, and staircases and was part of defense of Cusco in particular and the Inca Empire in general.
After walking around the ruins, we were going to return to the hotel in Cuzco.
We are passing through in front of a souvenir shop at the gate of Puka Pucara and walking to the collective bus stop.
On the way back to the hotel, I found a strange thing on a roof of a private house.
From the place where the city of Cusco can be overlooked, I walked down to the city centre along the narrow path.
I am a little tired, so I will take a rest in the hotel for a while. See you!
