The constructions QUECHUA in our complex


In our undertaking are walls dating from the 17th century built with "quilmes" principles, which is not normal unless they have been built on-site by people of that descent. Each wall has its signature when constructed, the "quilmes": wall of 60 cms wide to 80 cms. Constructed with two external bases or stones of very solid appearance, supported one to another without alloy. This type of wall is presented with a stone on each side of external wall "ligada" in the middle with stones incrusted like lock and ligature. The wall is locked inside, you can not see but from inside the building. Of this type of wall appear the three constructions in the middle of the building, used and recycled in cabins respecting the construction. Our guests coexist with history in rooms of 300 years or more.


In addition in the new property of the strong place is begun the construction of a chapel with its respective tower or bell tower that with the course of the years it collapsed until a spectacular height of 4 meters, with which it is seen internally as it was constructed ; Leaving the Quechua influence in sight. The strange thing is the height by which we deduce that in turn they have had Jesuit influence. In our opinion Quechuas were constructed with Quechua forms but with an enormous height that demonstrates the ecclesiastical-Christian influence but there is no logic of such height. In the property we have recovered walls with an incalculable historical value and we need connoisseurs to be able to arm our history that is the one of our past. We have been influenced in the north of Cordoba, not only in Piedras Amontonadas of exquisite architectural works but also in the indigenous language, quechuismos , for example: "chacra", "quirquincho", "anchi" , "Antarca", "añapa", etc.
