La agricultura y la architectura <ul><li>Los andenes son las terrazas que construyeron los incas para cultivar comida en las montañas. </li></ul><ul><li>The incas used gravity to provide water to irrigate the andenes, so it was crucial to know the direction of water flow down the mountain before construction could begin.   </li></ul>
  12. 12. Los andenes <ul><li>The andenes were filled at the bottom with a layer of sand and stones for good drainage. </li></ul><ul><li>Then the Incas transported fertile ground from other locations and use it to fill up the andenes right to the top. </li></ul><ul><li>The soil was fertilized and tended to produce high quality food for the Incan empire. </li></ul>

Waru Waru <ul><li>This system was use in flat high terrains where the water supply was coming from the rain. </li></ul><ul><li>The system consists of a water tempered micro-climate by the construction of canals around the soil. </li></ul><ul><li>The channels were filled with water from the rain which irrigates the crops and cools the ambient temperature. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Waru Waru <ul><li>Los waru waru son importantísimos para la áreas secas como el altiplano de Bolivia y los desiertos de la costa para cultivar comida. </li></ul>
