The Otuzco Windows

Cajamarca

The Otuzco Windows are set 4 miles (7 km) outside the city of Cajamarca. When you get here, you’ll swear that this was once a city built into a cliff—the holes are shaped like squares and look similar to windows. However, the holes are actually 600-year-old burial sites from the Cajamarca culture. The Spanish destroyed the original tombs, but the structures that remain are still impressive and give you a good sense for the history surrounding this place. It’s thought that the Cajamarca used it for over 1,000 years. There are a total of 337 niches.
