  • Calendar solar or sowing or indigenous or diaguita and Inca watch.. .that is I... still not sure but I was there and I saw it and impotence was me set strong because it was abandoned,... full of weeds, trash, informative poster lying on the ground and the other by the rain IAS and winds. AND I CRIED... Rage I CRIED and wondered why human beings do not value do of our peoples. It is a circle of 20 meters. in diameter, built on the ground, about 50 cm of the same, with 40 spokes coming out of its Centre from a rectangular stone of no more than 1 mt. high; plus 1 radio cutting another, indicating the magnetic north pole. Everything is filled with small and round stones. Surrounds it a wall that serves as a containment built of stone and adobe with a slight slope. This archaeological site shows us the knowledge these pre-Hispanic peoples had about architecture, engineering, agriculture, geography, and astronomy. The day we went it was rainy, but we don't stop to appreciate the Sierra of the Paiman and this small village where is located called San Nicolas, which has only about 153 inhabitants according to the Census of 2010. It is located on the RN40 7 km. of Chilecito - Pcia. La Rioja - Argentina

  • Sunday, March 11-in the city of San Nicolás, a few kilometers from Chilecito and in open countryside, finally we can find this archaeological site called "Inca" or "clock" or "indigenous" calendar calendar diaguita. This mysterious artifact is located a few meters from the road right at the entrance of the city. There are no signs and the site is definitely abandoned to weeds. Is placed on a raised floor from land of about 40 cm. with the exception of the Central stone (Gnomon) not exceeding a meter in height. From this start 41 rays, ending in the circumference of about 20 meters. Built in stones of different colors and sizes, it would be a real treat for tourists and for scholars, put him to tell the world if the province by wiping, restructuring and placing signposts and explanatory. A real shame. The Argentina is already low in history and that little which is thrown to the winds. To visit.
