An important highlight of Cajamarca is the "Cuarto de Rescate" or the "ransom room" - an historically important site where Inca ruler Atahualpa was held captive by the Spaniards.

We will also learn about the ancient Belén complex, a church and former hospital of the city together with the museums. Other sites that will be visited are the Plaza de Armas of Cajamarca, the Cathedral and the Iglesia San Francisco.
