Located 7km from Cusco at 3,700 meters above sea level, this site was popularly known as the "Inca's Baths". Researchers believe Tambomachay was an important center of worship of water. It is an archaeological complex made up of well-crafted canals, walls and windows which show the Incas' extraordinary architectural talents and their in-depth knowledge of hydraulics.
Here are some of my favorite ruins called Chinchero. There terraces were made by the Inca's in order to prevent erosion of their crops. for a long time the Peruvian government allowed the people to still cultivate this land, but because of misuse and the people not rotating the crops they are no longer used.
Overall, if you want to be blown away with beauty, heights and ancient architecture; it is true that Peru is the Archeological capital of the world.
