Inka Raccay’s Residence and its History:  The archeological remains of Inka Raccay, also called  “The

Abandoned House of the Incas”, are located south of the City of Cusco, at an elevation of  3,640 masl.

or 11,942 ft.  It is constructed in a cellular fashion, somewhat similar to the structure of a honeycomb.

There are a number of small and medium size rooms and walls with niches, windows, and trapezoidal

doors.  Because of its location and the way it was constructed, it probably functioned as a “tambo” or

control gate.

It possibly could have been the temporary residence of Manco Capac and Mama Ocllo while they made

visits into the Valley of Cusco. Trails from here connect to the majestic Apu Wanakaure, and to the

archeological sites of  Maukallaqta, Pumaorco, and Tambotocco. It was the first site constructed by

the Incas at the very beginning of the Inca Empire.
