Regionaltravel in Peru 

Cajamarca  


Cajamarca in the northern Peruvian Andes takes its name from the Caxamarca culture, which was based here. In the empire of the Incas it acquired a very great importance. An important step in American history was the arrest of the Inca Atahualpa by the conqueror Francisco Pizarro. This began the destruction of the once mighty Inca Empire. Even today a room can still be seen, which according to tradition was filled with gold and silver, to buy the release of the Inca.

The thermal baths are particularly reminiscent of the past time of the Incas, which were already used by the Inca and still bear the name «Baños del Inca» and the «Throne of the Inca» on the Santa Apolonia hill not far from the center of the city. Many remnants of pre-Inca times can still be found in the area, such as Cumbemayo (burial sites, water channels, rock paintings) and Otuzco (burial sites in rock niches).
