This is a pre-inca site. The size of the settlement is quite impressive. The double wall is quite unique. And the surrounding mountain and valley view is beautiful. At the nearby site, it is interesting to see the Inca stone facade against the pre-inca wari...More

Amazing location, only had about 1.5 hours there, could have spend three or four hours wandering around the ruins, looking at the archtecture and generally marvelling at the stone masonary and wondering about the people who use to live there.

On a cooler day this may have been a different experience, but for me this was just a lot of walking in scorching heat to see pretty much a repeat of the same thing. There is no information, no map of the ruins, no signage...More
