The main attraction at Ingapirca is the Castillo de Ingapirca (or Castle of Ingapirca). This main structure is also known as “la elipse” or “templo” (temple).
It was in this castle that ancient astrologers established the agricultural calendar of the regions. It was also used in their religious festivals.
