Padre San Jacinto Group's story

The Acostambo community is in the Acostambo Distrit of the Tayacaja Province, Huancavelica Department.

The Acostambo District is 3,600 meters above sea level and is situated to the northeast of Huancavelica, at the end of the immense Mantaro Valley. It is very close to the Huanta riverbed, which is important to local historians because the Incan troops, advancing along the road from Cuzco to Quito, necessarily passed through this territory. The troops camped in the area which today is known as “Tambo Machay” (a tourist destination in Acostambo), which is maD. up of a series of well-defined geological caves.
