An archaeological complex constructed from stone, and occupied from the pre-Ceramic period to the Inca and Late Horizon Period. Port Inca is comprised of various sections: living areas with rectangular and oval shaped enclosures, dispersed burial sites, and terraces. Due to its location in a rocky ravine, the terraces were constructed to restrict the possibility of landslides. Some archaeologists and historians believe that one of the Inca Trails started from here, then entered the territory of Ayacucho before reaching Cusco.
