Archaeological complex of Marcahuamachuco is part of the Tentative list of Peru in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

Marcahuamachuco is an archaeological site in northern Peru which is the best example of a local culture called Huamachuco. This sanctuary, built between 400 and 1200, was a place of devotion and worship for the local communities who had to mobilize to build this monumental religious site. This massive stone construction and the planning of the site illustrate the beliefs of the communities and reflect their mastery of land use concepts and their great commitment to the practice of their religion.
