The only site that has survived is Solar Observatory of Chankillo, submitted for decision in 2020.
I think that "Chachapoyas sites of the Utcubamba Valley
" includes Kuelap
from the previous T List. The extension to other sites in the area seems worth having!
We lose 2 Colonial Centres - Cajamarca
- Excellent!! There are more than enough of those. Have only really seen the latter ( and Cajamarca many years ago during a night bus trip!) - not great loss other than the possibility of a future tick.
We gain 2 Middle Horizon non Inca sites - "Archaeological complex of Marcahuamachuco"
and "Archaeological Complex of Toro Muerto"
. The former is also Excellent. The latter - yet another Petroglyph site but still of interest and value I guess...?
We gain another pre-Colombian non inca site - Nazca Aqueducts
They seem worthwhile!
The Salt Mines of Maras
dating back to Inca times seem a fine addition. Annoying, however, that we have made 2 visits to the Sacred Valley across the years and never saw them!!! Shucks.
Regarding the "Baroque Temples of Callao
". The Church of Nuestra Señora del Carmen de la Legua dates back 400 years but was partly destroyed by a car bomb in 1992 although it has been restored. It is a significant Peruvian pilgrimage site
and has associated other buildings. Not a great prospect if that is what it is!!
What are - "The Rural Temples of Cuzco
"??? Are they Inca temples around Cuzco or "Indigenous" churches? I think the latter and that it will include San Juan Bautista in Huaro
which has received WMF money. Every Latin American country seems to want to place some of its indigenous Christian churches on its list!!!
The loss of Lake Titicaca
is a bit surprising but it really lacked a focus so in reality no great loss - but would lose the chance of a tick for many of us!! It was a "Mixed site" so it might come back in if Peru is still to add sites with natural values??
We have already discussed
whether or not Pachacamac is included under Qhapaq Nan and concluded "probably yes" - so its exclusion from the new T List isn't really a surprise!
