The department of Amazonas in Peru, close to the Andes but within the Amazon forest, has a millennial history.
Prehistoric evidence on rocky walls includes the rock paintings of Chiñuña-Yamón and Limones-Calpón in the province of Utcubamba. Some of these haughty pictorial samples were made by people who had a hunting economy 6 or 7 thousand years ago.
There are many architectural remains from the Chachapoya culture such as Kuelap, Gran Vilaya, Cerro Olán, Purum Llaqta, Cheto, Gran Pajatén, etc. All these structures appear to be related, but their age and order of construction are unknown.
