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.

  • An archaeological site of early exploration, showing a very small percentage of what was that settlement in Inca times. Apart from the archaeological site itself, is negatively striking very bad service, unmotivated and devoid of supply, which is provided in the "dining room" bar (a dining room in which there is any type of food, at least the day in which we visited), located within the site.

  • It was extremely interesting. First we visited the Museum. We did the walk, in part, with a guide. We reach the highest area, where you could see the entire archaeological site. After getting off, we could stand alone to take the flat part, take more pictures and walk to our rhythm. The UNLP is studying the site. Highly recommended.

  • Beautiful visit! go slippers and comfortable, carry water. It is a guided tour to foot to Inca ruins, you have to climb to foot a mountain, keep in mind this because the path is big and complicated stones to climb, not suitable for elderly people. but it has a beautiful view.
