Photo of the Day: Pikillacta Ruins Cusco Peru

| Taken by Jason | 1 Comment » | Photo of the Day

The Wari Empire was a pre-Inca civilization that constructed extensive roadwork across Peru. Believed to have been conquered by the Incas, Wari peoples no longer exist. Pikillacta lies 30 kilometers outside of the city of Cusco and covers 2 square miles. It appears very large, but much is still to be excavated and restored.
