Sacsayhuaman, Cusco, Peru
Archaeological Complex of Sacsayhuaman. The complex comprises 33 archaeological sites. The most well-known is Saqsayhuaman, it is presumed that its construction was of religious character, but by its location and style was considered by the Spaniards and cronistas like a military building.The area where this construction is located corresponds to the head of the sacred animal, and one of the translations that has this word is, precisely, puma head. Pachacutec Inca Yupanqui, the ninth Inca, redesigned the city and gave it the shape of a cougar lying down (the puma is the guardian of earthly things).The space covered by their constructions is particularly large; what is most striking is the three stone walls that suggest the figure of the fortress.
