CALLEJON DE HUAYLAS

Entering the Callejón

Built on the banks of the Santa river, Recuay is the first town you find on entering the Callejón. Its old colonial-style mansions and the simpler buildings of mud brick walls and tiled roofs are outstanding.

Known as the Doorway to the Callejón, this town has in its surroundings the hot springs of Conococha, To Related image to the Multimedia GalleryPachacota, Pumapampa, Burgos and Utuco.

From Recuay the traveler can take one of two routes: the one leading to Chavín de Huantar, pre-Hispanic citadel of narrow corridors with the famous gargoyles and monolithic stele and the other along the Callejón de Huaylas highway which leads to Huaraz or Huarac Koyllurk, Quechua for "dawn star".

This capital of the Department of Ancash is a town that today breathes only an air of its former nature. The Centenario section is the only one still retaining some features of local traditional architecture.

The rest of the town has a different look: straight streets and houses with large rooms. The reason for this change was the violent earthquake of 1970 that meant a new Huaraz had to be built. raising it on the ruins of houses and the pain of tragedy.

The traveler should visit the Archeological Museum on the Plaza de Armas To Related image to the Multimedia Gallerymain square, holding works by the people of the Chavín culture which was considered by archeologist Julio C. Tello as the mother of all the cultures that ever flourished in ancient Peru.

Other places that demand a visit are: Rumacayán Hill and the ruins of Huilcahuaín located 4 miles from the city, and Punta Callain, viewpoint for a panorama of the immense chain of snow-covered mountains of the Cordillera Blanca, and of the whole Callejón de HuaylasTo Related image to the Multimedia Gallery .
