Resumen

CERUTI, María Constanza. HIGH ALTITUDE SHRINES IN THE REGION OF LAGUNA BRAVA (PROVINCE OF LA RIOJA, NORTHWESTERN ARGENTINA.: PRELIMINARY SURVEY REPORT. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2003, vol.35, n.2, pp.233-252. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562003000200004.

The preliminary results of the archaeological survey in the area of Laguna Brava, in the Andes of Western Argentina, are presented in this paper. The aim is to provide a record of Inca ceremonial activity at the summit of mountains associated with this lagoon. The presentation includes data related to the architectural and surface record from the high-altitude shrines located above 16,500 feet, on the summits of mounts Morado and Pilar , as well as the Inca sites located at the shore of the lagoon and on the hills that surround it. Sites on those summits are perceived as "satellite shrines" that are articulated with ceremonial complexes of higher hierarchy in the region. In the discussion and conclusions, the cult and symbolic aspects of these shrines that encircle Laguna Brava are interpreted with the aid of ethnohistorical and ethnographic references.

Palabras clave : High altitude shrines; Inca ritual; Andean sacred landscape; satellite shrines.
