It is one of the largest necropolis of America and the most impressive of the World. Chullpas are monumental buildings considered funerary monuments, some more than 12 meters high, built by family clans of royal lineage from kingdoms Collas, intended to keep his remains.
The way they were built is a challenge to the laws of balance, having a smaller diameter at the base than the top part. The construction system, to raise the massive stones to the upper parts, is based on the adosamiento ramps inclined planes. It stresses the so-called “Lizard Chullpa” of more than 12 meters high, 7.20 in diameter at the bottom and 7.60 on top.
