Peru. Episode three: Incan ruins around the city of Cuzco

The Inca were no joke.. and even the stuff that was mostly destroyed by the Spanish is quite impressive. These sites are all within a short drive of downtown Cuzco which was considered by the Inca to be the “navel of the world.” Their empire was huge for a few hundred years there, and their construction here was quite ambitious. Plus, everything is oriented towards the east. They sure did love the sun!
