Cutimbo Archaeological Site

This is one of the most important pre-Hispanic burial grounds on the Andean plateau

Cutimbo Archaeological Site

This is one of the most important pre-Hispanic burial grounds on the Andean plateau. It belonged to the Lupaca and Colla realms. Although there is evidence of rock art that is 8000 years old, the main structures were built between 1100 and 1450 AD. There are also remains from the age of the Incas. Chullpas or pucullos, large funerary towers, dominate the landscape.
