Above the ancient capital of the Inca empire, Cusco, there's a steep hill. It's name is Sacsayhuaman and on top of this hill is one of the greatest monuments of ancient Peruvian architecture. Some of the largest rocks on these tiers of the monument weigh in tons. How the Inca builders moved and cut these rocks with great precision still challenge understanding.
