Duration: 2 hours
Stop At: Museo de Sitio Tulipe, Parroquia Nanegalito, Tulipe, Tulipe Ecuador
The Tulipe Archaeological Site-Museum in Ecuador was originally built by the Yumbo people who lived in the valleys and mountains surrounding Quito between 800 and 1660 AD. No one really knows what happened to these ancient people, but it is surmised that they might have migrated to the Amazon basin after the Pichincha Volcano erupted in 1660, destroying much and certainly striking fear into many people in the area at that time. Regardless of what happened, what is certain is that the Yumbo people left behind them a significant archaeological find at the Tulipe Archaeological Site. Originally their ruins were disregarded by Spanish chroniclers and other historians. Fortunately, times and opinions have changed and some 2000 pyramids and mounts have now been unearthed at this site.
