Meaning of the name
Pucapucara means red fortress, called like that because the location of the group and the existence of some semi-circular environment, the red color because of the earth. This name was used in this century.
Pucapucara counts with:  interior places, baths, aqueducts and an old road. The buildings were made of stones that have many medium-small sizes; the surface of the rock is very rough, compared with other archaeological remains. The urban layout is appropriate and functional.Traditional information says that when The Inca decided to visit  Tambomachay, the large retinue of soldiers, dancers and others stay in Pucapucara sale (place of accommodation and storage houses for food).

The workers built three walls that have uneven floors, the establishment of three levels to the same place. The first wall has a sinuous route carefully avoids cutting the rock outcroppings. To the north side and behind the exterior wall, you can find six rooms of various sizes, which are built in an irregular way, so as not to touch the rocks that create the wall. The second wall surrounds the central uplift. Between this and the former there are broad platforms facing south and east.
