“IT´s all right”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2013

There is not much to see, it has plenty of history and significance, but the ruins are just a litlle rock complex in the middle of the world, if you are already there, pay a visit, if not, don´t sweat for it.

“Ruinas de Rumicucho aka El Pucara de Rumicucho”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2012

As a tourist site, Rumicucho is undeveloped. To park, a lady who held the rope across the road with some authority demanded $1 per person to enter. Once there, it is clear that there is an old archeological site but there are no signs, guides or other materials to add relevance to what you're looking at. The views down into the valley and the surroundings are impressive but I won't go back. If you're already at the Mitad del Mundo or Museo Intiñan, this short side trip may be worth an additional 90-minutes but it is not a destination in its own.
