Located to the northeast and a few minutes from the city center of Andamarca, Caniche is a large pre-Inca archaeological complex, with stone buildings constructed on a circular base, with slabs secured by a mixed mud mortar. Some walls reach a height of up to 12 meters. The site corresponds to the Chanka period. The name Caniche means: that which bites. Some evidence suggests that this place was used to punish delinquents, trapping them between two rocks.
