Excursions in Cajamarca
Visit of the Inca Baths, located 6 km from the city of Cajamarca. Originally called Pultamarca, it is here, supposedly, that Atahualpa was resting just before the confrontation with Pizarro. Here you find hot springs of mineral water with a maximum temperature of 72ºC (158ºF). It is believed that they possess therapeutic properties for the treatment of bone and nervous system disorders. Discover the natural healing power of these hot springs through sessions of hydrotherapy and massage to help reduce muscle fatigue caused by physical exertion. After this visit, transfer back to the HOTEL.
Visit Cumbemayo complex, discovered in 1937, it is surrounded by an interesting stone forest that seems to mimic the silhouettes of pious friars (for which it is popularly called "frailones" or giant friars). In addition, you find the Aqueduct (1000 B.C.), a unique work of hydraulic engineering, the Sanctuary, a cliff that looks like a giant human head, and the Caves, which include cave paintings and carvings."
Visit the Ventanillas de Otuzco, located just 7 km. from the city, standing out amidst the countryside. The site is a pre-Inca cemetery which pre-dates the Caxamarca culture, probably influenced by the Wari empire. Hundreds of galleries and individual niches resembling windows were hewn into the volcanic stone. The niches probably were originally sealed with gravestones carved with figures in haut-relief, judging by fragments found nearby. The niches lead into a network of dark and mysterious galleries which appear to have no end, giving rise to myths of secret tunnels that linked Cajamarca to Cuzco. At the end of the visit, transfer back to the HOTEL.
