Specialists and technicians of the Decentralized Directorate of Culture of Cusco (DDCC), will begin archaeological prospecting work in the archaeological park of Machu Picchu, which would allow the discovery of new vestiges, it was reported.
Francisco Huarcaya Quispe, head of the Inca Road Network, told Andina News Agency that this year the work will be centered between the Phuyupatamarca and Torrepata sectors, which is at kilometer 106 of the railway line to Machu Picchu Pueblo or Aguas Calientes .
“Last year there was a record of some roads, sacred sectors, lookouts, huacas, which for us are places of worship,” he said, referring to the discoveries between the middle and upper part of Mount Intipata or Torrepata.
Here were found funerary contexts, huacas or ceremonial zones of the Inca period, funerary contexts, under rocky shelters, anthropomorphic paintings, camelids, zigzag lines, ceramics, puquios, viewpoints, among others.
Francisco Huarcaya Quispe said that similar to these findings and perhaps more surprising vestiges would treasure Machu Picchu on the Inca Trail since it has preliminary knowledge of main and secondary roads, “within them we will probably find viewpoints, sacred spaces to the mountains that are around , Salkantay, La Veronica, Pumaq Sillun. “
