The Windows of Combayo
The mysterious burial niches in the mountains of Combayo
The Combayo Tomb, also known as Ventanillas de Combayo (windows of Compayo), is a group of tombs very similar to the Ventanillas de Otuzco, located on the San Cristóbal hill in the municipality of Combayo, in the district of Encañada. This tomb is part of the so-called Capacán Route or the “Gran Inca Trail”, which runs through almost the entire central Sierra.
This tomb is part of the Cajamarca culture, which was classified as having an approximate age between 500 and 1200 years a.Chr.. The plant is located at an altitude of 3,000 meters above sea level and, being at a considerable distance from the villages, is in a better state of preservation than the tombs of Otuzco.
The tomb can be seen from afar from a distance. It shows you on a big hill. From an architectural point of view, the windows of Combayo are a building located on the slope of the hill of San Cristóbal. For the construction niches in the rocks of the hill (volcanic tuff) were beaten. In the windows of Combayo you can see that the burial niches are arranged in rows next to each other and on top of each other.
