For many years this pre-Inca site was looted by treasure
hunters, who ransacked the place completely, taking away all its
treasures. The mummies kept in their tombs were for centuries
mute witnesses of this pillage. These grave robbers just left
behind the corpses, which can be seen today all over the ground.

century old tombs, as well as long human hairs, pottery
fragments and others remains scattered on the desert surface.
