    It is a beautiful place, typical of the city of Tacna. It is quiet, ideal to walk with the family and to obtain beautiful photographic memories

    Here you will see many petroglyphs, and you'll see naturalistic, magical-religious, and representations of daily life, all carved in limestone or silica modeled by scraping or hammered. You can also see that the human being is the main element, this appears to hunting animals, holding poles, dancing, playing musical instruments. There are also representations of rafters in an attitude of rowing. The animals that can be recognized are vicunas, felines, birds with outstretched wings, snakes and lizards. These representations sometimes included the eyes of animals. There are also figures of Cactus plants, flowers and corn crops. You have to go very carefully observing every rock, unfortunately are not very well-maintained :( BUT worth without counting it costs just S /. 1.00 ($0.27). Bonus Track: Recalls are 2 suspension bridges, and that is by 23 KM has hidden petroglyphs but a very real representations of the activities that were carried out. Walk everywhere and be attentive.

    This Miculla near the city of Tacna and is a fantastic ride if you have interest for archaeology. The petroglyphs show scenes from the life of the settler of the area, its fauna, flora and perhaps visiting some strange... the desert landscape and the dry river are a reason more to give free rein to the imagination. It should be prepared for a walk between stones of almost three hours in the Sun, it is good to go early in the morning, wear sunscreen and bring water to drink. There is a small site museum with toilet. The landscape is desolate and the blue sky.
