Quebrada de Humahuaca
The Quebrada de Humahuaca is an Andean valley 155 kilometers long, flanked by high mountain ranges and laboriously dug by the Grande River, located over 2000 meters above sea level. It is an arid area of scenic beauty and rich in cultural heritage, which is evident in the towns from south to north: Barcena, Volcán, Purmamarca -where Seven Colors Hill stands out, Maimará, Tilcara -where the Pucará of the same name is located-, Perchel, Huacalera, Uquía, Humahuaca and Tres Cruces. The towns in this valley link history and traditions of ancestral roots. It is a unique cultural landscape in the world, since the Indian villages of the area preserve religious beliefs, rites, festivities, art, music and agricultural techniques that are a living heritage, an important reason why it was declared a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2003. Its current inhabitants are mostly of the Quechua ethnic group. The valley was scene of different ancestral cultures 10,000 years ago, among them the “Omaguacas”, who gave their name to the place. In the Quebrada de Humahuaca, there are still Quechua descendants of the ancient settlers, and live in coexistence with nature, the Pachamama (Mother Earth), the Sun God, the god of thunder, lightning and all living beings whom they respect.
