- Huayna Capac Inca (at the end of the 15th century) ordered the construction of this complex altar for funeral rituals. It's made of a system of tunnels, galleries and geometric cuts carved into the stone. Opposite this area is the amphitheatre, a great elliptical wall with 19 entrances that appear to be wide seats or thrones, and an interesting monolith of 4,70 meters in height. Until 1934, the whole ensemble was covered beneath 3 meters of earth. Admission is included in the "Tourist Ticket."
