Chavin Ruins Tours

One of the earliest and best-known pre-Columbian sites, Chavín was home to a culture that thrived between 1500 and 300 BCE. Perched high in the Peruvian Andes, halfway between Lima and Chan Chan, Chavín was a place of worship and has a striking appearance. Complete with terraces, buildings, and plazas ornately decorated with extraordinary icons and symbols, this site was one that lured many pilgrims from the ancient world and consequently made itself an important spiritual and cultural junction.

Chavín de Huantar Ruins

The most important archaeological site in Chavin is the Chavín de Huántar. This was built approximately around 900 BC and has earned UNESCO World Heritage status. The temple has innovative irrigation and drainage systems and were technologically advanced in metal-works, acoustics, gold-working, agriculture, and more. Chavin art and architecture is displayed in the temples, pottery, and sacred texts such as cryptic stelas. There are also interesting obelisks and so many other artifacts that are well worth a visit for any history buff or anyone interested in Peruvian history.
