The Pumamarca ruins a few miles up the Patacancha valley is well worth visiting. The ruins are easily accesed by foot, car, mountain bike or horse back. The sight itself dates back to the 8th century AD and was inhabited continuously until the conquest. The architecture is interesting with a number of buildings some of which were temples and others store houses, it is built in the fashion of the Pucara or fortress with a massive defensive wall surrounding most of the complex. On your way to Pumamarca you can't miss the impressive terracing at Musqa Pukllo which the foot path passes above. The scenery is impressive overall and the hike is only mildly challenging.
