Notes on the Geography of Peru: Ollantaytambo: Photo 7

world pictures Peru: Ollantaytambo

Impressive? In the words of Stella Nair and Jean-Pierre Protzen, these "terraces symbolized the Inkas' power both to conquer the Andean landscape and to transform it... the importance of this symbolic aspect of Inka terraces can be seen by the fact that Inka terraces tend to be found much more often around the Inka heartland--in particular, around Inka royal estates--than in the provinces."

See Stella Nair and Jean-Pierre Protzen, "The Inka Built Environment," p. 217, in Izumi Shimada, The Inka Empire: A Multidisciplinary Approach.
