Closer Look at the Inca Maze

I drew the outline of the path within the maze (Uspallata, Mendoza, close to Ruta Nacional 149 highway in Argentina), and it follows the classic "Cretan" design (actually it is a universal design, repeated across the globe spanning thousands of years):

The "inca" labyrinth of Uspallata
maze inca origin

The image above is the maze at Uspallata. In red I outlined the route from the center to the entrance. The yellow line is a "corridor" that leads nowhere. It makes the maze symetrical.

I believe that it is not a maze built with high walls, perhaps it is just a path outlined with boulders, less than 4 inches (10 cm) high. That would explain why the wind or a flood uncovered it recently. Not much soil had to be removed.

Notice how similar it is to the ones below:

Images of similar mazes (from top to bottom): Coimbra, Portugal. Cornwall, England. Finland. Hollywood Stone, UK. Padugula, India. Sardinia, Italy. Syria.

  1. South-Germans in Spain became the "Bell-Beaker-Culture", seafaring (amber+copper-)traders, from there the story goes to England + Greece +++ "worldwide". The Megalith-Builders. Atlantian-Pelasgers, the maze as a symbol of their descent and trading-post(-harbour/-place/-town)=troy.
