"CAJAMARCA : VENTANILLAS DE OTUZCO" Peru Things to Do Tip by swesn

Peru Things to Do: 659 reviews and 852 photos

A simple half-day excursion you can do on your own is to take the micro from the market area of Cajamarca (around Calle Apurimac and Cal Jose Sabogal, ask the locals) to Ventanillas de Otuzco.

The Ventanillas de Otuzco are located just 8km from Cajamarca. These are a series of square or rectangular niches of 50-60cm in height, carved into the side of a cliff. Some of these niches reach a horizontal depth of 8 to 10 metres. These are actually part of an old cemetery of the Cajamarca culture.

Nice walk around the rock-face and you can appreciate the beautiful scenery around.
