Ruin
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.

  • You should promote a little more there are people who don't know them. This site is great peace and energy just by walking. You can not describe it in this space, you have to visit it...

  • In our tour of Route 40 on its way by Catamarca, we made a stop at the village of London, where recommended us to visit the Inca ruins of the Shincal. We did not know of its existence so we were pleasantly surprised. It is well worth your visit. There are times with guides to visit them. The guide we had to name Rosita was highly prepared was your story very interesting. It is amazing to know that in Argentina we have this kind of ruins of invaluable archaeological significance. Obviously we must disseminate more this place.

  • The Shincal de Quimivil archaeological site is located a few kilometers from the town of London. Declared national historic monument in 1997, was a regional administrative centre and capital of the province during the period of Inca dominance in the region. It has a museum which is important to go before visiting the site since it provides a chronology of the different cultures that occupied the region, as well as a brief description of the same and a scale model of the archaeological site. Then visit the Museum we took the tour with guide, which ends at a point in height from which, in addition to explanations of the case, you have a full view of the site. From there one can walk the place on their own, visiting the kallankas, the aukaipata, ushnu and the staircase. As yet he continues digging, there are places that cannot be accessed and other who can shoot from a distance. The site also features a tearoom, the cost of entry into February 2017 was $30, also having various types of discounts. In addition to its historical importance, the place is beautiful. Highly recommended visit!
