ADOBE

Incan Architecture


Among the materials used in the Incan walls we can find the adobe (sun-dried bricks). Many buildings and even entire cities of the Tawantinsuyo were made with this material; that is the case of Pachacamaq, which is still standing in the south of Lima. To make the "adobes" the preferably chose good-quality clayey soil and they mixed it with the "ichu", and in some cases with alpaca wool. All these materials were mixed with water, placed in rectangular molds and dried with the sun. The adobe buildings are still preferred in the Andes because they are easy to obtain and besides having thermal properties, they are durable and can be covered with straw or tiles.
