El Chasqui, San Miguel de Tucuman

Pay a visit to the statue of El Chasqui, which celebrates an essential part of Incan history. The chasquis were a team of highly trained, agile, and speedy messengers tasked with delivering important messages and orders throughout the Inca empire. Sometimes running unbelievable distances of 240 km (149 mi), the chasquis had a set of rules and equipment to maximize efficiency. Pay special attention to this statue's representation of the quipu (a kind of pouch where they carried written information based on a set of codes), and pututua (a kind of trumpet to sound clarion calls).
