The Central Highlands Sights

Parque de la Identidad Huanca (Huanka Identity Park)

Fodor's Review

The focus of the beautiful Parque de la Identidad Huanca is on the pre-Inca Huanca culture, which occupied the area but left few clues to its lifestyle. A 5-km (3-mile) drive from Huancao, the park has pebbled paths and small bridges that meander through blossoming gardens and past a rock castle just right for children to tackle. An enormous sculpture at the park's center honors the local artisans who produce the city's mates burilados (carved gourds).
