Photographer's Note

I read many texts about this place, it is called Saqsaywaman and it is located near Cuzco city.There are many theories about this building, some people say it was a fort, others say it was an open temple to Wirakocha, the god of the thunderbolt, and cause this these walls have a shape of a zig-zag. Most of this building was demolished, anyway it is impressive, very huge rocks, fantasticly carved and put together. These buildings is located in the top of a high place near Cuzco, being there we can see all that town. Unfortunately I had few time there and weather wasn´t nice for photos.
