Tupac Inca Yupanqui Palace


Mapa del Palacio Pukamarka

Pukamarca was located between the currently Maruri, San Agustín, Santa Catalina Ancha and Arequipa streets.


Pukamarka" is a Quechua word. It means Red Place. Inca Tupac Yupanqui gave this name to the palace, which had a rectangular peripheral frame. It was located at the south east of the Waqaypata (now Main Square). This palace was built by Inca Tupac Yupanqui and his family called "Hatun Ayllu".

It is said that Inca Tupac Yupanqui decided to build an amazing palace not only to show his greatness but also to establish his superiority over his brother Amaru. However, he could not build his palace in the main square or Aukay Pata. Because, he had to respect his father Pachacutec and his grandfather Viracocha.
