TAMBO
Throughout their empire the Incas constructed special rest stops along the routes used by the emperor, his court and the army. These centres were called tambos. In each tambo there were granaries and stores of food, clothing and ammunition for the travellers, as well as buildings to lodge them, bathhouses and even temples for religious ceremonies. As they were on the routes between important places, the tambos developed over time to end up as important population centres in their own right. Many survive today, as do the ruins of many others, which are of historic and anthropological interest, such as Ollantaytambo and Tambomachay, in Cusco.
