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.

  • The place is being recovered in its historical content and investigations are being carried out by the University of la Plata. Up to the mountain of the Sun you have to go to the first sight at 8 in the morning, bear hat, water repellent, Sun cream... Sandra, the Guide showed us with care and pride everywhere, answered all my questions and was very helpful at all times. Your service was very professional. The very good brochures. There is a small place at the entrance to where if you carry yourself something to eat can have a cute picnic next to the flames which there are super quiet. It is a place to visit, recommended completely. In addition, London is a beautiful place where if you want to you can stay overnight.

  • It's a city that had a great political and religious importance for the incas. The site is being studied by anthropologists and archaeologists who are putting it in value. To enter you have to pay an entrance fee and is a very entertaining guided tour that lasts about two hours. If the visit carry it out a hot day, it is convenient to carry a bottle of water and a CAP and protection, given that the walk is mostly under the Sun. At the site you can also visit an interpretation centre very well since and also has restrooms and a confectionery.

  • Excellent interpretation centre. Sample in a very didactic way the chronology of events. It has very convenient place model. The guidelines are very clear and the visit becomes very interesting. A walk through places of particular energy.
