Ollantaytambo was a strategic military, agricultural and religious center to administer and control the Sacred Valley of the Incas and enter the jungle of Cusco; this is deduced by the constructions that presumably were for agricultural deposits and for military use like walls and watchtowers (probably to protect themselves from the jungle ethnic groups). There are 150 steps that separate the summit from the lower part and you can see the perfect carving of the stones, obviously dedicated to the cult of water, with great similarity to those of Tipón (South Valley of Cusco).
