Reblog: Incallajta – Bread Basket of the Inca

One of the world’s greatest and most well-known ancient civilizations is the Inca of Peru (and Bolivia and parts of Ecuador and Chile).  It is a part of Latin American culture that brings great pride to those from the region, and awe from visitors.  Many may know of the ruins at Machu Picchu, Peru and it is indeed a favourite tourist destination.  Perhaps, a not so oft talked about Incan ruin site is that of Incallajta.  Located in Cochabamba, it is one of the most well-preserved ruins in Bolivia.  Over at Living The Q Life, Peter and Dona have posted a lovely recap (with photos) of their tour of the ruins.  They’ve even included little historical tidbits gleaned from their guide.

I hope you’ll head over to their site to see more stunning photos of Incallajta (featured image is taken from Living the Q Life) and read about the time they spent there.
