Ruinas de El Shincal, Londres

4.7
#2 of 8 in Historic Sites in Province of Catamarca
Discover the remote and little-known pre-Columbian ruins at Ruinas de El Shincal. Historically inhabited by Paziocas, the site became an Incan stronghold sometime between the 15th and 16th centuries. While not as grand as other Incan ruins in South America, the picturesque mountain vista and flat, accessible terrain make this an essential visit. Head up the Inca steps on the hills that flank the ruins for the best panoramic vantage point of the surrounding area. Take a camera along for the chance to capture roaming llamas in natural habitat.

  • Rosa Ramos was our guide on this occasion. It made us live the time and location of the native populations. A genius! . The place is fantastic and I recommend a visit who can come through this area.

  • Very nice site archaeological, well-kept, well-armed and modern Museum. It has a retaurant. Very good explanations of both the Guide and ticketing site. The route is approximately 90 minutes

  • For which no travelled to Peru to see Cusco or Machu Picchu, get an idea of what was an Inca settlement, and even more so in our territory, is worth in itself as experience. A little contradicting earlier opinions, the care in maintaining these ruins can be seen. There is a very nice Museum and a dining room, that I not went and I do not qualify (but qualify a dining room in indigenous ruins is like going to Rome and complain of broken sidewalks). The heat was too heavy to be October (41 °) and the Guide did his best so that we did not die of dehydration. The view from the top has its impact, because all the Citadel, with its pyramids and their places of worship and worship. In addition to the places of everyday life, stores, all semirreconstruido, new stones on old stones. That he make to understand the model. It's nice, it's not great. Now, London has not almost places to eat... In Catamarca they don't think much about the tourism...
