An archaeological complex constructed from stone bricks, held together by a mud mortar, Yalape was an urban center that dates from the years 1100 to 1300 AD. Belonging the Chachapoyas culture, the site sprawls over 4 hectares, and has low walls, suggesting a residential area with few defenses. The hilltop complex contains the signature circular buildings of the Chachapoyas culture, featuring rhomboid and zigzag friezes of the kind that are found at Kuelap.
