As it was my last full day in Cajamarca, I wanted to make the most of it. It was a nice day with lots of sunshine so I decided to go up to the top of Cerro Santa Aplonia. I had previously gone about half way and taken a few photos but as it was crowded, decided to abandon the trip. As luck would have it, yesterday it was almost deserted.
Cerro Santa Apolonia, was where the Inca emperorAtahualpa had a “throne” and from where he surveyed his army and people.
With amazing views.
I had thought that this was the top but there is a small plateau further up which has a pleasant garden area. Entry about 25p.
Was this some sort of sentry box? It is very small.
