Trip Overview

Tambo Colorado is a fascinating Inca archaeological site in the Pisco River Valley of the Ica Region of southern Peru. Due to the very dry climate here, Tambo Colorado is one of the best-preserved Inca sites on the Peruvian coast, its adobe walls having withstood the ravages of time surprisingly well. The name of the site comes from the bright colors that once adorned its outer walls, with horizontal stripes of red, black, white and yellow ochre atop the stucco. Amazingly, some of these colors can still be seen today.  

The site was once a strategically-important administrative and control site. It’s location on the Royal Road between the coast and the highlands made it hugely important for the Inca Empire, including during times of war, when they could rest and resupply their marching soldiers at Tambo Colorado.
