The Central Highlands Sights

Pampa de Huánuco

  • Archaeological Site/Ruins

Updated 09/15/2014

Fodor's Review

Also known as Huánuco Viejo, this was formerly the ancient capital city of Chinchaysuyu, northern portion of the Inca Kingdom. These highland pampas contain Incan ruins and are near the town of La Unión, a S/30 ($12) taxi ride from Huánuco. During the last week of July the Fiesta del Sol (Sun Festival) takes place at the ruins.
