9. It was awful when this video ended! Mesmerizing. What scale! Beyond belief.

What a shock it would have been for the Spanish who "conquered" these people, realizing on sight that the area around Cuzco was far more heavily populated than any city in Europe at the time they left to come rape, pillage, and destroy in the Americas.

Thank you for both the video and the stunning stills of the huge stones in the wall.

So much to learn. It's compelling. What a great time for the internet to have become available to the public.

Someone was doing a little "showing off" with the giant stone walls. Surely they would have realized their accomplishments were so extraordinary people thousands of years later would become completely befuddled looking at them!
