Chavin de Huantar

Chavin de Huantar

The city's location close to the rivers between the coast and the jungle, made it an ideal location for the collection and trade in goods.

It is believed that this magic-religious center was built around the year 327 A. C. Its walls are of stone and pyramidal structures. In 1985 UNESCO placed it on the World Heritage site list.

Despite not being the oldest archaeological site, nor the largest nor the most flashy of ancient Peru, it was considered as a center of pilgrimage and earliest evidence of civilization in America.
