Anfiteatro de Kenko

Kenko
 is a quechwa word (peruvian language) that mans "laberynth". We don't know certainly what it was. Maybe the name was given due to the semi-circular construction. Several theories state that it was an altar, a court, an inka tomb, etc. But it is asumed that it was one of the most important sanctuaries of the Inkas.





Tampumachay

Tampumachay
 comes from two kechwa words: "tampu" lodging y "machay" place of rest. The theories state that for the waterfall, it could have been like a place for the Water Worship. It is well appreciated for the stones architecture shown in 4 tearraces in different levels.

OllantaytampuOllantaytambo was a strategic militar, religious and agricultural center. The originalk style of the buildings make it different. It is said that it was a militar fort to protect the Inka Empire.

Ollantaytambo stayed on the population memory thanks to the Theatral Piece "Ollantay" which is represented since the times of the Inka Pachakuti. The Play talk about an impossible love between the General Ollantay and Cusi Coyllur, the daughter of the Inka Pachakuti. They can not hold a romance for belonging to a different social classes.

- Return to Cuzco City. Overnight there and make the Machu Picchu tour at 03:00 AM or

View of Machu Picchu marvel

 

MACHU PICCHU was shown to the World in 1911 by Hiram Bingham, but the name of Machu Picchu was given by Melchor Arteaga, the guide of Bingham. For some scientifics, it was a monastery to educate women. For others, it was like a mausoleum to keep the Inka mummy.

 

These are just two among many hypothesis about he function of this citu. In general, this sanctuary (3rd. hypothesis) was divided in 2 sector: Agricultural and Urban.

 

It contains temples, palaces, houses, stores and overall buildings which accomplished religious ceremonial functions. One of the misteries is the construction in stone. The union between them without cement or any kind of glue. Las squares, aqueducts, the vigilance tower, the solar clock, among other vestiges, is a big testimonial of the high tecnology of the Inkas.

 

After this exciting visit, we will go down to Aguas Calientes town to have LUNCH on a touristic restaurant. Visit to the town and return to Cuzco city.
