Raqchi Archaeological Complex

Between the snow-capped peaks and original villages, in the Andean highlands between Cusco and Puno, there is the beautiful preinca site of Raqchi. Immediately noticeable are the slender, but very imprecisely crafted columns of Raqchi, some of which rise up to a height of 12 meters into the sky. Undoubtedly the heart of the once rectangular settlement high above sea level is the extraordinary temple of Raqchi. Consisting of volcanic rock and clay, the temple dedicated to the Inca god Viracocha is unique in Latin America.
