  • Huchuy Qosqo was a town located more than 3,550 m.s.n.m. on a small plateau at the top of a mountain. From here you can take beautiful views from the other side of the valley, it is possible to appreciate snowy of exuberant beauty such as the snowy Pitusiray and at the bottom of this privileged view, the village of Calca. It is known from the chroniclers, that it was the Inca Wiracocha who commanded to build the city of Huchuy Qosqo; it is said that in his old age, he felt tired and wanted to leave the government and move away from the movement of the capital of empire of Tahuantinsuyo (Cusco) and seek peace and tranquility in this place; it is built on a territory occupied by several human settlements, over time, these would be dominated and incorporated into the Incas empire. One of these settlements must have been right over Huchuy Qosqo.
