Takesi Trail

A pre-Columbian path


The Takesi road takes its name from a hamlet located on the route, it is a road that runs approximately 35 kilometers, paved during the pre-Columbian era, much of which is still intact. It is worth mentioning that this route is one of the best preserved today.

This pre-Hispanic route is one of the many that linked the different ecological levels, the highlands, with the warm zones, traveled since time immemorial by people who exchanged tropical products with products from the highlands, where the great local cultures settled. They also constituted routes of immigration and conquest.
