You will also be able to visit the city of Ollantaytambo, the only city of the Incas still inhabited where the descendents of the nobles of Cusco live in the palaces. The patios still maintain their original architecture. This city was built to house the military, religious, administrative and agricultural lives of the people accessed through a gate called Punku-punku.
