Fodor's Expert Review Rumicolca

Valle del Sur Military Site

An enormous 12-meter- (39-foot-) high gate dating from the Wari period stands at Rumicolca, sitting a healthy walk uphill from the highway. The Inca enhanced the original construction of their predecessors, fortifying it with andesite stone and using the gate as a border checkpoint and customs post.
