Cuenca: Visit Ingapirca Inca ruins

Visit Us

Visit Ingapirca Inca ruins

The ruins of Ingapirca are the most significant vestiges of the Inca empire to be found in Ecuador, and will add a fascinating historical dimension to your visit to the country.

Occupying a hilltop lookout, Ingapirca had both military and religious functions. Today the most striking building within the complex is the Temple of the Moon, with its curved stone walls enclosing a large sacred rock. The temple was built so as to filter the sunlight through a small doorway to the inner sanctum on the solstices, while the walls were constructed in the typical Inca style: chiselled to fit so precisely that no mortar was needed to fix them together.
