Ruinas de El Shincal, Londres

4.7
#2 of 8 in Historic Sites in Province of Catamarca
Ruin Tourist Spot
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.
