An Inca archaeological site, its construction is associated with the campaign fought against the Lord of the Guarcos (1450AD), in the province now known as Cañete. The site was constructed to be the General’s quarters for Túpac Yupanqu and was built of stone. You can recognize three sectors or neighborhoods: Barrio Incaico (for army officials), Barrio Religioso (possibly inhabited by troops) and the Palace of the Inca, a building that forms a trapezoidal shape at its highest point. The site is related to the archaeological sites at Cerro Azul, Huacones and Cerro del Oro (from the Guarco culture).
