Photographer's Note

The Colca region known in colonial times as the district Collahuas, was one of the most important areas of the viceroyalty of Peru. Such is that Francisco Pizarro instructs his brother Gonzalo, who is set to Yanque to exercise control of the Valley. At the time this fertile valley was populated by more than 60 thousand people engaged in agricultural production, especially corn and potato feed guaranteeing a large population and therefore a strategic area.
