About this activity
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Parque Arqueologico Rumipamba, Ave. Mariana de Jesus y Ave. Occidental Calle Nuno de Valderrama s/n y Ave. Mariana de Jesus, Quito 170150 Ecuador

This Natural and archaeological museum are evidence of Quitu culture, and even older cultures of our Ecuadorian Aboriginal history and cultures that inhabited Rumipamba in discontinuous way throughout history.

Rumipamba, quichwa word which means pampa or "plain of stone", is a Museum in situ whose traces correspond to many archaeological periods, among which are: remains of the period known as the “Late Formative”, from 1500 B.C to 500 B.C studied through the ceramic remains evidence of this dating. There are vestiges of the next period called "Regional development", from 500 B.C. to 500 A.C., characterized by the presence of tombs and associated with fragments of drilled tripods dishes and variety of pottery found on the site.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Museo de Sitio Tulipe, Parroquia Nanegalito, Tulipe, Tulipe Ecuador

The Tulipe Archaeological Site-Museum in Ecuador was originally built by the Yumbo people who lived in the valleys and mountains surrounding Quito between 800 and 1660 AD. No one really knows what happened to these ancient people, but it is surmised that they might have migrated to the Amazon basin after the Pichincha Volcano erupted in 1660, destroying much and certainly striking fear into many people in the area at that time. Regardless of what happened, what is certain is that the Yumbo people left behind them a significant archaeological find at the Tulipe Archaeological Site. Originally their ruins were disregarded by Spanish chroniclers and other historians. Fortunately, times and opinions have changed and some 2000 pyramids and mounts have now been unearthed at this site.
