Amazonas Region

Amazonas Region

The capital of this region, Chachapoyas, is a city full of narrow streets. Here you will find a large Main Square, beautiful mansions and lovely balconies as evidence of its Colonial past.

This is also the launching site for excursions to the fabulous citadel of Kuélap, built by the Chachapoyas, a fierce people that for years resisted the expansion of the Incas. Located at the top of rocky cliffs and guarded by a gigantic defensive wall, Kuélap reminds of a lost civilization.
