Reminiscent of crop circles, the three depressed circles that form decreasing terraces over one another were in fact created thanks to the dexterity of Inca hands and tools.

Really beautiful Inca ruins. Interesting how the Incas experimented. Wonderful experience including trivia on how name places changed over the years.
The site contains unusual Inca ruins, several terraced circular depressions, approximately 30 m deep. They did this to see how crops grew at different temperatures. As you get deeper, the temperature increases.
