Pisac Ruins

The Pisac ruins were built sometime during the Inca Empire (between the 1440s and when the Spanish conquered Pisac in the 1530s). The tombs of the mummies dotting the hillside were raided long ago, but the waterways are still flowing after more than 500 years. The stones, carefully carved and place so as to not need any mortar stand strong, except one gap caused by a large earthquake.
