1116 AR - Quebrada de Humahuaca (2003)

Brief Description

"Quebrada de Humahuaca follows the line of a major cultural route, the Camino Inca, along the spectacular valley of the Rio Grande, from its source in the cold high desert plateau of the High Andean lands to its confluence with the Rio Leone some 150 km to the south. The valley shows substantial evidence of its use as a major trade route over the past 10,000 years. It features visible traces of prehistoric hunter-gatherer communities, of the Inca Empire (15th to 16th centuries) and of the fight for independence in the 19th and 20th centuries."


"塔夫拉达•德乌玛瓦卡遗产地沿一条主要的文化路线——卡米诺印加分布。其源头起自安蒂恩高原(the High Andean lands)上寒冷的荒原,沿格兰德河谷 (the Rio Grande) 延伸,直到南部150公里与莱昂河(the Rio Leone) 汇合处。山谷里的遗迹向世人展示了过去一万年间,它被作为主要的商业通道的历史。有多出明显的遗迹表明,这里曾先后是史前的狩猎军体聚集地,还是印加帝国 时代(公元15-16世纪)和19至20世纪人们为独立而斗争的战场。"
