Vilcabamba Maps

This website is dedicated to study of the Vilcabamba region of Peru - a place of exciting Incan discovery.

In reading books about this area, I found it difficult to remember what areas are where and what those areas are famous for. So I decided to create an interactive map. Some locations were on some maps but not on others. So finding a certain location meant jumping from book to book and going to the library. So I decided to make it easier and more efficient.

This is a great map for following along in your book or study of the Incas.

 

Bibliography
