Pucara de Tilcara

Historical Site

What people are saying:

This old castle overlooks the entire canyon. The house was rebuilt by early archaeologists, regardless of authenticity. Forget the mistakes of those early scientists, Tilcara’s Archaeological Museum is still very interesting, exhibits a good attraction and is worth visiting. You need to spend some time watching the video in a building near the entrance. This is very useful. Don't miss Piedra Campana, a natural stone clock, very strange.

    The viewing...

    The viewing was amazing, but lots of climb so... good way to lose weight. However, it shouldn’t put you off as end of climbing was worth it.
