Sacsaywaman or also called "sexy woman"

The ruins of the Inca fortress of Sacsaywaman is one of the main attractions from the Inca period and is located about 3 km above the city of Cusco. Probably this fort should protect the most vulnerable access to the city. In fact, hundreds of warriors entrenched themselves during the Spanish conquest behind their walls. The fort was thereby partially destroyed, later also by an earthquakes, so that today only about a third of it is preserved.
