The citadel of Incallajta was built around 1470 AD by the Inca Tupac Yupanqui and is the largest and most representative Inca site of the former province of “Collasuyo”. The citadel holds characteristics of a city with diverse functions (political, administrative, ritual, military and domestic), represented in its various sectors and structures.
On June 20/21 and December 20/21 each year, rituals are staged at the ruins to celebrate the winter and summer solstice.
The visit to Incallajta can be ideally combined with a visit to the small town Totora, capital of Carrasco province. Toyota is a charming little town that has maintained its colonial character and many traditions. During the year different festivals are celebrated, with the piano festival in October being especially popular.
