This is an enormous Inca ruin on top of a hill overlooking Cusco which was to big for the Spanish to demolish during their invasion. The structure contained a large open space, no one knows for sure what this was for, it could have been used as a garrison, temple, sports ground or a combination of all three. Like many important sections of Inca structures the perimeter walls were made from very large granite stones each weighing several tons. How they got them there was one thing but then to tailor the joints so there were no gaps seemed impossible.
