The multi-tiered terraces that line the mountain at the northwest end of town fill almost every view of Ollantaytambo. It is perhaps the most impressive of all the Incan constructions for its size, although not as picturesque as Machu Picchu. A climb up 200 steps brings you to the fortress’s top, but it goes by quickly and is not nearly as difficult as you would think.
The defense was only part of the fortress. Half was a temple and of equal importance to the Incas. The temple area is on top of the terracing and was only half-finished at the time of the Conquest.
What does it intend to be, an astronomical observatory or ceremonial center? The temple construction was started by Pachacutec using Colla Indians from Lake Titicaca, which explains the similarities of some of the monoliths. It is believed the Colla deserted the work and left many of the stones untouched.
Who could blame them if they had to be carried from more than six km/3.6 miles away? The archaeological complex was once the site of one of the few Spanish defeats in 1536, just after they followed the retreating Manco Inca, who had just lost the battle at Sacsayhuaman. Hernando Pizarro and his force of 70 cavalrymen attempted to climb the terraces and capture the Incas.
But arrows, spears, and boulders rained down upon them, and the plain below was flooded. The Spanish retreated but soon returned with a more significant force, and Manco Inca had no choice but to flee to Vilcabamba.
In the area between the town and the fortress near the Patacancha River, you will encounter the so-called Baño de la Ñusta or Bath of the Princess. What used the gray granite waterway and pool for ceremonial bathing?
Recently, researchers discovered what appears to be a pyramid west of the fortress. Some believe it is the real Pacaritambo, where four Incan brothers sprung from the earth to start the empire—the alternative Incan creation myth.
The site has a 750-m/2,460-foot wall that aligns with the sun’s rays during the winter solstice on June 21. It can be seen from the opposite side of the river, one hour west of the Incan bridge.
