The Puca Pucara or "Red Fort" ruins are located in the Sacsayhuaman Archeological Park about eight kilometers from the city of Cusco.

These ruins aren't the most impressive in the region, but the sight offers excellent views of Cuzco valley and glacier formations to the south.

It's believed that Puca Pucara or "Puka Pukara" was an Incan military checkpoint in between Cusco and Antisuyo.

Some of the features of the fort include watchtowers, very high walls, aqueducts, warehouse rooms, and a series of rectangular containment structures.

This is one of the nearby attractions that you can see before starting the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.
