Salapunco - Ruin Cusco - Peru

Salapunco is a group of small caves that housed the mummies of Inca priests and other Inca elite. Inside the caves, the walls and altars are decorated with pumas, snakes and other important cultural symbols. This hauca is dedicated to worshipping the moon, and the position of the entrance allows the interior to be lit up once a month by the light of the moon.
