About the Lady of Ampato

Called affectionately "Juanita" and then renamed the Lady of Ampato, this mummy of a young Inca girl about 14 years old, was found in 1995 in a perfectly preserved condition at 6,130 meters a.s.l., on the top of the snow peak, Ampato, in the Department of Arequipa by archaeologists from the Catholic University of Arequipa.

It is believed that about 500 years ago she was sacrified to the Apus, mountains that the Incas considered as protective gods of the cities.

Recently exhibited in Washington D.C. by the National Geographic Society, studies are able to show more specifically the characteristics and customs of ancient people in the Inca Empire.
