Jalca Grande
The Essential
Interesting

Also known as La Jalca, this picturesque village is one of the most characteristic of the Chachapoyas region, with its tiny paved lanes and 16C dry-stone rustic church. Built on Pre-Hispanic foundations, the town has preserved a few houses built on a circular plan with pointed thatched roofs in pure Chachapoyas tradition. The population is almost entirely Indian and the women continue to don their traditional costume and high straw hats.
