"The inheritance of the Inca civilization, the incredible military fortress"
Some people say that Cuzco City is seen from the air, it is like a cougar, Sasavaman is his head, and the ancient city of Cusco is his middle The nobles home is his tail. In the first chapter of today, let's take a look at the head of the "cougar" - Sasavaman (also known as "Sax Sewaman").
Sasawaman is a Stonehenge. It is built on the mountain. It is a golden soup that guards the safety of the ancient city of Cusco. After several major earthquakes, many buildings collapsed, but it still stands proudly. Proud of the Quartet.
Into the scenic area, I saw a row of megaliths displayed there, these boulder seem to silently tell the glory of the Inca civilization. Entering the Stone Array, the first thing you see is an open area surrounded by small hills and terraces. Standing on a high hill overlooking the distance, you can see the densely populated houses on the hillsides. It is the ancient city of Cusco. Some Indian women in the ancient city took pictures with alpaca and tourists.
Going along the walls of the stone array, fingers touched every stone in the stone wall. Stone walls vary in size and shape. Like other Inca stone buildings, how to build it is still a mystery. It is difficult to insert a piece of paper in the middle of many stones. It's hard to imagine how to make this piece of stone spliced so many years ago without any adhesive. What's even more amazing is that a whole stone slab is built with stone. There are more than 300,000 pieces of stone, big and small, and there are many boulders weighing hundreds of tons. How to transport them and put them together? A piece of pieced together into a stone array.
After walking through the stone wall and going up through a stone door, it is a neat step. When you walk up, you can see the original foundation and shape. The center of the ancient building is a circular platform that extends towards the surrounding layers. It is said to have been a round tower-shaped building with a specially constructed platform inside, and the platform is connected to a labyrinthine passage. One or more of them lead to the tunnel.
We have not been able to interpret how huge stones are transported, nor can we detect what process is used to polish stones. If the Spanish colonists did not destroy the Inca civilization, then we might be able to explore the secrets of this civilization from other aspects, and solve many of the mysteries of the present, but history is history, and its value lies in its inability to replicate. !

When it comes to Peru, the first thing we think of is often the symbol of Inca civilization, Machu Picchu, and ignores the real cradle of ancient Inca culture, the city of Cusco.
Cusco City means "the center of the world" in Quechua, located in the upper reaches of the Birganota River, in the Andes Plateau Basin, at an altitude of 3
JOJO’s wonderful trip
"Cusco" is not as good as "Lima" may be encountered in the "World Geography" class back to the capital, this ancient capital of the Inca Kingdom, which has never been heard, is located in the Andes Plateau Basin at an altitude of 3410 meters, because the plateau reflects the beautiful The ancient city has a real sense of entering a illusory world.
The Peruvians themselves call it "the pearl of the Andes crown" and the "cradle of ancient Inca culture". Cusco City has been listed by the United Nations as World Cultural and Natural Heritage.
Today, although the Inca Empire is no longer there, Cusco does leave you completely in another world.
