Kuélap is an important archaeological site located in the northeastern Andes of Peru, in the Province of Luya, it was built by the Chachapoyas Culture.
It forms a set of large stone characterized by its monumental condition, with a large artificial platform, oriented from south to north, seated on the crest of calcareous rock at the top of Cerro Barreta (at 3000 meters above sea level). The platform extends for almost 600 meters and has a perimeter wall that in some points reaches 19 meters in height.
It is estimated that its construction had to begin towards the eleventh century, coinciding with the period of flowering of the Cultura_Chachapoyas, its occupation had to culminate towards halves of the sixteenth century. Its colossal walls and its complex interior architecture are evidence of its function as a well-organized population group, which includes administrative, religious, ceremonial and permanent residence areas.
