01El Fuerte

Sitting at the top of a large hill, the ruins of El Fuerte offer a striking view of the surrounding valleys. Historically, the area was home to a variety of different groups, though its most famous occupants were the Incas. However, by the time the Spanish arrived less than 200 years later, the Incans were gone. The true purpose of El Fuerte remains a mystery, but it is truly an incredible site.
