This fabulous city has houses, temples, warehouses, a large central square, all connected by narrow roads and steps. You will be unable to resist your own speculations at the impenetrable mystery of these silent stones. From here, the epithet "marvelous" falls short when applied to this work of the Inca Civilization and to the beauty of its imposing natural scenery
