Santa Apolonia Santa Apolonia, Cajamarca

Not far from the center of the city of Cajamarca, the mountain «Santa Apolonia» rises and offers a wonderful view of Cajamarca and the whole valley. Beautiful staircases, ornamental gardens and a chapel dedicated to St. Apolonia invite the visitor. Among the remains of pre-hispanic constructions still visible today, stands out the famous inca chair, «Silla del Inca», a seat carved out of blocks of stone found on the hill. In the past, the mountain was denoted by the quechua term «Rumi Tiana» (made of stones molded seat) known.
