Trip Peru – Sacsayhuaman

This enormous stone fort on the northern edge of Cusco continues to play an important role in preserving elements of the Inca culture, starting with its awe inspiring array of the empire’s unmatched stonework..
The stones used to build Saqsayhuaman are the largest found at any Inca ruin, but the masons created perfectly interlocking joins with no mortar or metal tools. The largest stone stands 8 and a half meters high and weighs more than a hundred tons.
