Saksaywaman

Saksaywaman is a walled complex on the northern outskirts of the city of Cusco, Peru, the former capital of the Inca Empire. The complex is as many other Inca constructions made of large polished dry stone walls, each boulder carefully cut to fit together tightly without mortar. The site, at an altitude of 3701 m, was added as part of the city of Cusco to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1983. Located on a steep hill that overlooks the city, it contains an impressive view of the valley to the southeast.
