Part II : Origin and Migration

Ollaytantambo is a fortress located between Cusco and the area where the Incas fled after their defeat by the Spaniards. It is geared to protect the area around Machu Picchu, Vitcos, Choquequirao and many other Inca cities. But it was not built to the arrival of the Spaniards. It was therefore the Incas to protect themselves from attack by people from the South who have already taken Cusco. If people came from Inca Cusco South or East, it would, conversely, protected Cusco Fortress Ollaytantambo and it would be built with a different orientation.

When the power Incas fled to the Spanish, it left or south or east, but organized resistance on a line from Cusco and Machu Picchu direction and Espiritu Pampa. Socially, it reflects the connection of power to the Inca region and the need to protect the region in the event of a leak of Cuzco. If the Incas were from Lake Titicaca, they would go for reinforcements in the region. The people, in our history have proved the next logical reaction: a people who conquered territories, he knows must retreat, he will retreat into the region from which it comes. It will also seek, in its early conquests, to satisfy the territories with which, historically, it has a strong link. The first Inca conquests became north and east. If the Incas were actually in the South or the Amazon region east of Cusco, they would have had no difficulty in uniting the peoples of these regions.

Montesinos says although Amautas had to fight people from the south and east, and a loss to Chancas forced them to leave Cusco and stay Tampu Tocco. If the enemy is to the east and west of the capital deserted, there is little chance that the point of withdrawal of this people is in that direction. The north or west seems more appropriate.
The method of construction is found in all cities of the Inca style, and Cuzco, highly consistent with the fact that the region important to the Incas and they seem to come from is located to the north, northwest of Cuzco.

The archaeological discoveries that push to think that the Incas from the east or south are mainly based on studies of pottery, textiles. But trade and the presence of pests in Cuzco Amautas naturally explain that objects from the art of the peoples of the south and east is present in and around Cusco. The removal or the creation of object of this size is quite conceivable without concluding that the Incas were from these cultures. The architectural style is a lot more relevant than the objects. There are Japanese figures in Paris by Haussmann buildings cons characterize much to the people who built the city.

The Incas thus come north of Cusco, and not, as many seem to suggest, of the Lake Titicaca or the Amazon to the east. By cons, it is likely that the people of Cusco have belonged in certain proportions to these people. But the Inca dynasty does not come from these regions. And relevance of information Montesinos seems more important than what some archaeologists suggest.
