CHANASUYU: The Ruins of Inca Vilcabamba

For nearly 40 years after the Conquest, the Incas defied their would-be Spanish rulers from their hidden stronghold at Vilcabamba in the Andes mountains of Peru

 

Chanasuyu: The Ruins of Inca Vilcabamba

CHANASUYU: The Ruins of Inca Vilcabamba

A detailed survey of the neo-Inca state of Vilcabamba; includes 60 pages of maps, plans and drawings of all sixteen archaeological sites thus far discovered in the region, describing 350 kilometers of Inca roads and more than 500 individual structures and associated terraces, canals and bridges — virtually all that remains of the final stronghold from which the Incas defied Spanish authority for nearly 40 years after the Conquest. “Chanasuyu: The Ruins of Inca Vilcabamba” is a complete guide to the region for adventure travelers and interested archaeologists.

An updated version of ‘Chanasuyu,’ titled “A guide to Inca Vilcabamba” is included as ‘Appendix A’ to “Forgotten Vilcabamba, Final Stronghold of the Incas.” Included in both are the same maps, plans and drawings, but those in ‘Chanasuyu’ are twice as large and easier to read and use. Readers with a particular interest in this graphic documentation might consider purchasing ‘Chanasuyu,’ even if they already have, or plan to buy ‘Forgotten Vilcabamba.’
