Cajamarca is the capital of the Cajamarca region of Peru. It is an ancient city, with roots dating back three thousand years before the colonialist era, before the Inca era, and even before the Chavín people.
This region was inhabited by the Huacaloma, Layzón, Cumbe Mayo y Otuzco people. It is surrounded by fertile lands in a valley bordered by the Andes mountains.
In the colonial center, we find majestic churches border the capacious Plaza de Armas and on the top of The Santa Apolonia hill, which lies about 218 yards (200 m) to the south of the Plaza de Armas, not only offers expansive views of the city and the surrounding valley, but is also home to stone carvings.
A little bit out of the city we will find the Baños del Inca (Inca baths) , hot springs that dates back to the time of the Inca Empire; the minerals in the baths are considered to have healing properties.
The Ventanillas de Otuzco (Little Windows of Otuzco) are niches carved into the hillside, measuring 1 to 2.5 ft. (30 to 76 cm) high and up to 33 ft (10 m) deep where the Inca are said to have buried their dead; Cumbe Mayo, also known a ‘stone forest and much, much more.
