All the roads are connected with the Empire Capital Cusco. At first before the Inca Empire , Capac Ñan had a limited access because it was used only by the population of some cultures like Wari and Tiahuanaco, but when the Incas arrived the route was expanded to a great extent. This route was used for the invasion of the other civilization and taking control of the Entire Empire´s organization.
