Ancient fountains preside over this tranquil and secluded spot, which is commonly known as "El Baño del Inca," or, Inca's Bath. The name actually means "cavern lodge" and the site is a three-tiered huaca built of elaborate stonework over a natural spring, which is thought to have been used for ritual showers. Interpretations differ, but the site was likely a place where water, considered a source of life, was worshipped (or perhaps just a nice place to take a bath). The huaca is almost certain to have been the scene of sacred ablutions and purifying ceremonies for Inca rulers and royal women.
