One of the most important funeral centers in the Peruvian highlands, Cutimbo was found to have ties to the dominions of the Lupacas and Collas. The oldest archaeological evidence consists of rock paintings 8000 years old. The site also contains structures dating from the Late Intermediate period (1100 – 1450AD) and the Inca Empire (1450 – 1532AD). The site includes a group of “chullpas” or stone burial towers similar to those found at Sillustani.
