The Decentralized Culture Directorate of Cusco (DDC) informed today about new discoveries in the Chinchero archaeological park, located 30 minutes away from the city of Cusco.
Archeologist Félix Volca explained that several platforms were found covered by dirt and grass, generated from the construction of private homes and of the construction of the Chinchero museum.
Among other finds, according to Volca, there’s an aqueduct next to a wall, probably used to distribute water for the crops, and several chambers related to the Inca era. This is the platform number 1.
On platform 2 a chamber with 2 different environments has been recovered so far, as well as remains of another wall pointing north. At the end of it, another chamber with similar characteristics is evident.
The restoration of these platforms in Qentepata is a project that began in 2013 and should finish later this year.
Cusco is a city in Peru known as the historic capital of the country. In the era of Incas, it was the capital of their empire, and also one of the most important cities of the Virreinato del Peru, when the Spanish conquerors arrived in this continent.
