It draws attention to the large limestone outcrop in whose upper part have been carved intricate mythical representations of worship of the earth and a set of channels for ceremonial use or zigzag pakchas that would be the origin of the name of this place.

PUCA PUCARA: (Red Fortress), whose name is due to the hue that take their rocks with the light of dusk, is a military construction composed of overlapping terraces, high walls and staircases, which together with Sacsayhuaman, was part of the defense system of Cusco.
