A Brief Introduction

Tambo Colorado was a strategic Inca center, dominating access to the Inca road leading to the highlands and eventually to the Inca capital in Cuzco. Comparing the state of the complex today with the documents from the original excavations 100 years ago, it is obvious that it has suffered considerable deterioration and damage during the past century. The detailed digital documentation of the site captured by the CyArk team is being used to support current archaeological and architectural research at Tambo Colorado.
