"A Must Visit Archaeological Site"

Incredible historical place in Tucuman. If you have the opportunity to visit it, accept one of the local guides and listen what they gave to say about the Quilmes and their culture. The part if the ruins that are open to visit have been restored, but from the pucaras you can see the part that has not been restored.

Ruins of Quilmes

The Ruins of Quilmes is an archaeological site in the Calchaquí Valleys, Tucumán Province, Argentina. The site was the largest pre-Columbian settlement in the country, occupying about 30 hectares. The area dates back to ca 850 AD and was inhabited by the Quilmes people; it is believed that about 5,000 people lived here during its heights.

Although discovered in 1888 by Samuel Alejandro Lafone Quevedo, the ruins were first studied in 1897 by the archaeologist Juan Bautista Ambrosetti.
