Ayacucho

Located at 2,750 masl, this was one of the largest urban centres of ancient Peru, dating back to the Wari civilization, which flourished between the 6th and 11th centuries A.D. It covers an area of approximately 2,200 hectares, although the main buildings are concentrated in the centre. The complex is divided into "barrios" (neighbourhoods) or sectors delineated by stone or clay structures covered in fine painted plaster, predominantly red and white, with a subterranean water system and drainage. There is an on-site museum filled with objects found in the area.
