Choquequirao (from Quechua chuqi, gold, and from k'iraw, cradle, that is to say: "cradle of gold"), 1 are the archaeological remains of an Inca city located between the foothills of the snowy Salcantay, under the jurisdiction of the district of Santa Teresa, Province of La Convencion, Department of Cuzco, southern Peru.2 The archaeological monuments of Choquequirao are made up of buildings and terraces distributed at different levels, from the lowest level Sunch'u Pata to the highest truncated peak, which was leveled and fenced with stones to form a platform with an area of ​​approximately 150 square meter. Choquequirao (sometimes also as Choqequirau or Choqekiraw) is known as the "sacred sister" of Machu Picchu for its structural and architectural similarity with it.3 Recently, being partially excavated, it has awakened the interest of the Peruvian government to recover even more the complex and make it a more accessible alternative for tourists interested in learning more about the Inca culture.4
