Discover the Cabeza de Vaca Archaeological Complex in Tumbes

 

¿Do you want to build a trip to Tumbes and not just visit the beach? We recommend you visit the archaeological complex Cabeza de Vaca.

 

 

Approximately 5 km southwest of the city of Tumbes (10 minutes by car) is this archaeological site of adobe and stone that was occupied, according to researchers, from pre-Inca times, during the predominance of Chimú and even during the Inca domain. In the place they have found pieces of ceramics, bones and stone instruments and a workshop in which shells were worked like the spondylus and other bivalve molluscs.

 

 

Likewise, an 8 km road has been built with a pebble that connected the archaeological site with the coast, as well as an irrigation channel and a truncated pyramid or adobe huaca called “Cabeza de Vaca”, 250 meters long., 100 meters wide and 15 meters high.

 

 

The Cabeza de Vaca Site Museum “Gran Chilimasa” exhibits in one of its rooms archaeological material, photographs and plans that expose the importance of Cabeza de Vaca in the Qhapaq Ñan or Inca Trail.
