THE LOST CITY DE HUAYURI


The Lost City of Huayuri is located in Santa Cruz's Gulch, district of Santa Cruz, County of he/she Feels, Department of Ica. It is a prehispanic establishment of Intermediate Late Perido (ca. 1100 D.C. to 1476 D.C.). Although the archaeology of this prehispanic period this poorly well-known one, since the biggest investigation emphasis has put on in the remains of the Culture Nasca (0 to 650 D.C.), the archaeologists know that Huayuri had its biggest occupation moment during the Late Intermission, that is to say after the abandonment of the customs of the Culture Nasca and but before the arrival of Inkas in the area. However, they can be indicative cultural that they indicate us that the place was busy and used during Inkas and during the Colony.

Huayurí is located in a gulch of oblique orientation to the course of the river Santa Cruz. It is for this so particular location that he/she has received the name of Lost" "City. The architecture remains tame prehispanic they extend on some 15 there is. of the land of the gulch using the base of this so much as the hillsides. The prehispanic architecture is of agglutinated (opposed to dispersed) type, that is to say without leaving free many spaces among structure and it structures, and it is highly of character I tame, since they have not been remains of buildings or architectural spaces to those that another function can be assigned (p.and. civic-religious).

For their peculiar location and the density of their archaeological remains, the City Peridida of Huayuri has attracted the attention of local tourists and foreigners per decades. Such it is the force of their mysterious halo that during the several weekends of the months of winter, commonly schoolboys' of Nasca replete buses and Ica arrive to the place. Apesar of being broadly laid the foundation in the collective memory of Iqueños and Nasquenses (but he/she asks to any person of Ica that has but of 50 years and he/she will know it!), little is it it is really known on their prehispanic residents, of the conditions of their existence, their customs, or of the because they chose so peculiar location for their housings. With the exception of two archaeological previous projects (the I finish of which we have news one carries out in 1984 -5), few have been the scientific studies that relizado is had with the purpose of knowing but about these old residents.
