Tambo Ma’chay: Bathing House

The archaeological site of Tambo Ma’chay features a stunning Incan building with fountains flowing through it, which are thought to have been used for ceremonial bathing or anointing. The fact that the hydraulics still gush with water despite lying abandoned for 500 years is testament to the Incas engineering skills.
