Notes on the Geography of Peru: Cusco: Photo 100

world pictures Peru: Cusco

Markham observed that the three entrances were "so narrow as only to admit of two persons to pass at a time." Squier added that the gates were closed by lowering a block of stone, though it's unclear exactly how this was done. His explanation seems to be based on a comment from Garcilaso to the effect that a door was suspended from the lintle, but again there is no evidence of this (Markham, p. 92, Squier, p. 473; for Garcilaso, see Hemming p. xxx).
