Fodor's Review

At the end of Calle 2 de Mayo steps lead to this hilltop mirador, or scenic lookout, where a bird's-eye view of the city awaits. At the top are many carved bricks dating to pre-Columbian times. One of the rocks has the shape of a throne and has been dubbed the Seat of the Inca. According to local legend, it was here that Inca rulers would sit to review their troops. You'll find pretty gardens and great views of the town. You can either walk or go by taxi (round trip S/6).
