Revash and the Leymebamba Museum

Near the town of Santo Tomas de Quillay are located a group of burial buildings in the mountains. The walls are composed of small stones set in mud mortar, plastered and painted in shades of cream and red.

Unusual roofs are made of wooden legs tied together with vegetable fibre and there are also a variety of pictographs carved into the cliff walls behind the chullpas. You can visit this unique site before continuing on to the interesting museum of Leymebamba.
