An Inca Repose
Tambomachay is eight kilometres from Cusco and one kilometre from Puca-Pucara, on the slopes of a hill. The name comes from two Quechua words: Tampu, open accomodation, and Mach'ay, resting place. Tambo is also called the Cave because there are caves nearby (Machay). It occupies an area of 437 square meters at 3,700 metres in elevation. It is small, but very beautiful and mystical.
