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.

    Impressive ruins, has a kind of pyramid, which can be reached through a hundred ancient steps! Very good!

    Even if you do not like, it is similar to the ruins of Quilmes, but Inca construction less arid, and closer to route. For historical description, there is a bibliography. If will leave gratuities to guides, is part of their income, they put effort and many people go without leaving a weight, a shame.

    Great place, super guide order, are some ruins which are not widespread and are part of the Inca Trail. It has a museum with good infrastructure and a very rich dining room, we ate some delicious fried meat pies with also delicious tamales. There is a guided tour to 9.30 and another at 1430 with a return of more than an hour and a half, you should go with comfortable clothes and water, to us we played with a lot of heat! Worth it!
