Create an itinerary including Ingapirca Ruins
Admire stunning feats of architecture at Ingapirca Ruins, the largest known Inca ruins in Ecuador. Built without mortar, as many Inca settlements were, the city's buildings have stayed upright throughout the centuries thanks to a perfectly interlocking network of stones. In fact, the city symbolizes something even more notable: the peaceful co-existence of the Inca and the indigenous Cañari people on the land. While the two cultures didn't really integrate, they maintained an amicable enough relationship, allowing each other to remain autonomous. Take a guided tour to learn more about the ruins, including the sun temple and observatory. Put Ingapirca Ruins and other Ingapirca attractions into our Ingapirca trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • It's a well guarded secret by the Ecuadorian tourism chief that incapurca is closed a few days a week. When tourists have just a few days to see sites around cuenca, one would HOPE the ruins...
