FORTIFIED CITY OF KUELAP

Kuelap is the most important archeological site in the North American Andes.
It forms an architectural stone complex characterized by its monumentality, with a large artificial platform, seated on the crest of rock on the top of Cerro Barreta (3000 msnm). The platform extends along almost 600 m and has a perimeter wall that in some points reaches 19 m high.

It is estimated that its construction should have begun towards the sixth century, coinciding with the period of flowering of the Chachapoyas culture, and its occupation should have culminated towards the middle of the sixteenth century.
Its colossal walls and its complex interior architecture are evidences of its function as a well-organized population set, which includes administrative, religious, ceremonial and permanent residence enclosures.

KARAJIA & CHACHAPOYAS

In Karajía we find a set of sarcophagi (coffins whose shape follows the contour of the human figure) representative of the funerary tradition of the Chachapoyas. They are unique for their extraordinary height, up to 2.50m, and careful elaboration. They were found in the Karajía ravine in 1985 by Peruvian archaeologist Federico Kauffmann Doig. Being located at the top of a difficult access ravine, they were kept safe from looters.

San Juan de la Frontera de los Chachapoyas was a border between the Andes and the Peruvian Amazon. There was an important role during colonial times as a gateway to the jungle. Through its streets the passage of conquerors, explorers, who were heading towards Loreto still resonates. They are the same streets where we can still see colonial houses, with flowery patios and balconies.
