  • Few km from Amaicha del valle, the route follows a path that leaves you in a building that is the office of entry. 15 are paid and give you a small map. It offers entry people from the indigenous community an explanation, and if you want a guide has a cost extra. As he was with a French couple and only speak Spanish we are left with the explanation of the entry. We climbed one of the roads hqstabla top where is mpuede appreciate the large expanse of ruins. It is an interesting site especially for the history of resistance to the conquerors.
