trip to the past
Toro Muerto (English: Dead Bull) is a collection of ancient petroglyphs made up of 3,000 to 5,000 volcanic rocks which are products of the explosive volcanic eruptions of Coropuna and of Chachani about 50 million years ago.
Toro Muerto is located in the coastal desert of Arequipa city and it is believed that the petroglyphs; which showcase humans, animals (elk, snakes, llamas, deer, parrots), plants, and many other designs (geometric motifs, sun discs, etc.), are remains from the Huari and Chuquibamba cultures dating back more than 1000 years.
