The Inca terraces of Huchuy Qosquo, which in Quechua means "Little Cusco"

Huchuy Qosqo is an extensive group of stone platforms with walls that are slightly inclined inward to prevent damage from earthquakes. In the town section you can discern a building with three stories. The enclosure has a rectangular stone floor of astounding quality. In the interior a ledge appears to be in place to support beams to form a middle floor. There are also door recesses, windows and cupboards. You can also visit three long buildings, only one of which is in perfect condition, with five doorways and matching windows with views of the valley.
