Museo Santuarios andinos

Recommended
The Museo Santuarios Andinos was opened following the discovery in 1995 at the top of the Nevado Ampato (some 6000m high), of the body of a young girl, sacrificed by the Incas 500 years earlier. Called the Ice Maiden, she was remarkably well preserved, as are her clothes, by the glacier in which she was imprisoned. The museum also exhibits many objects used as offerings and a film on the research methods.
