We will continue walking following a path marked with the “Sleeping Stones”, stones that were abandoned by the Incas once the Spaniards arrived to Ollantaytambo and prevented the Incas from finishing the construction of the temple. This path will bring us to the Inca Bridge, at the entrance of Ollantaytambo, and the end of this wonderful journey.
