This Inca cultural center, at an altitude of 3950 meters above sea level, is composed of a number of buildings made from simple stone-masonry supported by mud mortar. K’anamarca features rectangular stone enclosures with dimensions from 3 to 8 meters across, 5 to 18 meters long, and from 5 to 7 meters high. Circular buildings range in diameter from 4 to 5 meters. The majority of these were storehouses for food. The internal walls and appointments in the enclosures retain their original mud mortar.
