  • Many of them are over 12 meters high and have a larger diameter at the top than at the base.
  • A challenge to the laws of gravity and balance. A detail that makes them unique in the continent. Tombs of noble collas, eternal abode of the Sons of the Sun, who when dominating these lands, would add architectural features similar to those of the Temple of the Sun or Cori cancha, in Cusco.
