Saqsaywaman:




The remains and fondations of a colossal strucuture, featuring three-tiered defense walls made of stones fitting with razorsharp precision. /it means /saatiaite /falcon and was built in some 77 years (1431-1508) under the ruke of incas Tupac Yupanki and Wayna Qhapaq. Then the Spaniards use the stone to build their own-house and churches, and a Cathedral. The largest stone weight about 70 tons! Very nice view over Cuzco.
