San Agustin

This whole area is beautiful farming area with no real road system and dotted everywhere with 1st-8thC memorials. Gods, mythical creatures abound as each main grave has its own guardians. An Andean culture is responsible for all this wonder, but is not even named. Out of all the sites we visited only one had a clear purpose and that was the sacrifice of any deformed babies as it was believed that each subsequent generation would be more and more deformed. We visited as many sites as possible, by foot, jeep and horseback. We really enjoyed the horse ride and at one point the horses decided to all line up and jostle for position in a race up the hill – great fun.
