See an authentic Incan site and get a sense of how the ancient culture revered water when you visit Tambomachay. As you approach the site you can see the still partially intact buildings. Walk through the small area and find the aqueducts, canals, and fountains left behind. The exact function of the site remains unclear, though prevailing opinion holds that it served as a military outpost, spa for the elite, or both. City tours usually show up in the afternoon, while mornings are less crowded. Plan to visit Tambomachay during your Cusco vacation using our convenient Cusco day trip planning app.

Beautiful. Short visit but worth it!
a waste of time in my mind. small site. a couple of small stone structures to see. you'll need a lot of imaginations to make this site interesting. one the other hand, it's right by the roadside, won't take much time to check out.
