Description: In the heights of San Pedro de Yumate, commune of the parish Molleturo in southern Ecuador, is located the Edge of Paredones, a mountainous massif that reaches 3600 MASL. At the base of its most western outward point is the city ruins of Paredones, a complex of ten enclosures that are crossed by the Qhapac-Ñan or Inka path. Its construction was carried out between 1450 and 1475, which was initiated by the Cañaris tribe and in its process came the conquest Inka, who finished its construction. Because of its strategic location, Paredones was a viewpoint that served to plan the defense of the territory and increase trade particularly with the tribes of the coast (Punas and Huancavilcas), whose appreciated good was the shell Spondylus.
From its summit you can see much of the Western Andes and the Coast of Ecuador, where elevations like Chimborazo, Puna Island, Gulf of Guayaquil and even some important cities of the coast can be seen in the summer season (August - September).
Currently Paredones is a very popular place for local tourists, particularly of the schools and colleges of the sector, however, it has been the object of stoles and lies in an absolute abandonment.
Quilico shows us some of the surroundings of the city of Paredones del Inka.
