This site is linked to the Recuay culture (Early Intermediate Period, c. 100BC-600AD). It consists of 4 structures locally called “caserones” (literally: big, rambling houses). The buildings feature an outer retaining wall with internal chambers constructed on a stone base. These platforms sit on the flanks of a hill, stand up to 15 meters high and are lined with mud. Likewise, a collection of square and rectangular structures on an oval base built on similar platforms on the nearby “La Capilla” peak.
