On the peak of a hill overlooking the city of Cusco lies the ancient fortress of Sacsayhuaman (pronounced like sexy woman). Once the domain of Inca warriors, nobles and engineers it now stands in ruins but many visitors explore its maze of intricately constructed walls, stairways and structures. After the conquest of Cusco in 1536 most of the inner structures of Sacsayhuaman were dismantled and used to construct Spanish Cusco.
