Also known as Limatambo, the historic tradition suggests that Tarawasi was ordered and constructed by the Inca ruler Pachacutec with the aim of establishing an inn or retreat in the region, on the road from Chinchaysuyo. Centered on a great platform with stone walls leaning slightly into the hill, it displays a cellular style, using interlocking granite blocks. It also includes an altar of rock or “usnu” and agricultural terraces with their own water sources and irrigation channels.
