More than 100 pre-Hispanic religious sites linked to ancient Andean cults discovered in Bolivia

Research carried out in the Carangas region of highland Bolivia has identified a surprising concentration of pre-Hispanic religious sites, which are linked to both ancient Andean cults of wak'a (sacred mountains, tutelary hills and mummified ancestors) and the Incan settlement of the region. Among these sites, one particular ceremonial center stands out due to its unprecedented characteristics for the Andes.
