Ingapirca, one of my favorite spots and the highlight of my Ecuador trip in December. In Kichwa, Inka Pirka means „Inca wall”, which is located in Cañar Province,, and the name of the older Inca ruins and archeological site nearby. This is Ecuador’s version of a mini Machu Picchu, and the largest known Inca ruins in Ecuador. The most significant building is the Temple of the Sun, an elliptically shaped building constructed around a large rock.
