  • The area where the archaeological site of Uyo Uyo is located has been inhabited by early Peruvians for about l0,000 years. The ethnic group living in this site and surrounding areas is known as "Collaguas" and they were ruled by the Wari people from about 600 ADto 1200 AD, from the mid l400s AD to 1532 AD by the Inca Empire, and from l532AD to 1821 AD by the Spanish Kingdom.
  • The current buildings were made by the Incas and the complex is divided in three main sections: urban sector, agricultural sector, and the cemetery sector.
