This was an Inca sanctuary dedicated to the cult of the water, and it was a reserved place for the Inca. It is known as the “Baños del Inca” (Inca’s spa). Its construction of fine lithic finish is a startling example of incredible hydraulic engineering.

Consisting of a group of walls that are united by stairs, there are springs that cascade to a pool through several channels. The waterfalls in these ruins form part of a terrace to the second wall where the drainage cascades on the first and forms a small pool.
The window sills, hole or niches are of 2m height, and was the place, according to the historians, that the Inca and the important people of his court offered water rites to the god Inti (sun).
It is located 8 km from the Main Square.
