About 5km south of town, off the Pan-American Hwy, is an overgrown archaeological site that was the home of the Tumpis people and, later, the site of the Inca fort visited by Pizarro. The story is told in the tiny site museum, Museo de Cabeza de Baca , which also displays some 1500-year-old ceramic vessels.
