Cajamarca


Cajamarca is located in the Northern part of the Peruvian Andes. Its name has its origin in the ancient Caxamarca culture that habitated this region. During the Inca Empire Cajamarca was very important. The last Inca, the Inca Atahualpa was kidnapped here by the Spaniard Francisco Pizarro and the powerful Inca Empire started to decline. The room that was filled with gold and silber for the rescue of the Inca Atahualpa is still preserved in Cajamarca. 

It is still possible to visit the ancient thermal baths of the Incas in Cajamarca. Nearby the city on the hill Santa Apolonia is preserved the "Throne of the Inca". Such as these many archeological witnesses can be found in Cajamarca, like the windows of Otuzco and the archeological site of Cumbemayo.
