In the South American continent many civilizations developed before the arrival of the European to these lands, as they are the Tiahuancos, the Charruas, the Muiscas, the Incas; Among the most important that achieved a surprising evolution, these have their origins in what has been discovered by archaeologists such as Pedra Furada -Brazil (between 32,000 and 48,000 years old), Cueva de Pichimachay - Peru (between 19,000 and 20,000 years old) Stone Museum - Argentina (13,000 years old). This shows that we have a long history and that these peoples still maintain ancestral traditions that have survived time and globalization and if we take into account that they were developed in a territory (Peru) that has more than 80 ecosystems, this results in a Magnificent ceremonial architecture, utilitarian in a magical land.
