Tambo Colorado, was an Inca settlement (1450 A.D.) located in the province of Pisco, on the right bank of the Pisco River valley. The name given to the complex is due to the predominance of red color in the buildings
It is one of the best preserved archaeological sites in Peru. Typically, Tawantinsuyo, in its architectural design, presents the singularity of being built in adobe, as an example of the adaptation of the Quechua architects and engineers to the new coastal environment they were beginning to conquer.
It was one of the most important centers established by the Incas on the coast. It is a group of constructions made with tapiales and adobes; among them are the best preserved adobe ruins in Peru.
