F2RH+CPX, Cusco 08003, Peru
Another archaeological site in Cusco. But unlike the others, this one was built inside some natural rock formations by carving and making crevices and tunnels. Pretty unique.
Nice to do around Cusco and more interesting with a tour guide that you can hire on site to learn about the sacrificial rituals.
Qenqo is another archaeological site close to the city of Cuzco. It must have been a ritual place and perhaps sacrifices, at first glance they seem like normal rocks, but when you get closer you discover its underground corridors, its ritual stone and the meaning of everything, it is essential to go with a guide so that they can explain things to you, if it could not go unnoticed or simply as a few stones without more. It is also included in the tourist ticket and together with Puka Pucara and Saqsaywaman are three places to visit if you travel to Cuzco.
Amazing place. See how the Spanish built directly around the Inca temples. Incredible to see the Incan sites still intact. Incredible stories of the emperors and Pachamama.
This isn't the most amazing of the archeological sites in the area, but worth pulling over for a few minutes. It has some great examples of megalithic stone cutting and shaping.
