Tambo Colorado

As I stayed in a hotel called Tambo Colorado whilst in Pisco, Perú, it seemed reasonable when it was suggested to me, that I visit the archaeological site after which it is named. Situated about an hour´s drive north of Pisco, Tambo Colorado is said to be the best preserved coastal example of Inca ruins.

The original structures consisted of a palace and accommodation for soldiers and workers.
