Title
In the time of the Quechuas, the Inca bridge Queswachaka was built entirely of Q'oya or chirua (straw) that are used to make the q'eswas (ropes) that are attached to logs, timbers and a stone structure, they were built exclusively to support the Inca bridge.

The Q'eswachaka bridge is proof of how our ancestors combined Andean engineering and tradition in a complex technology that is transmitted from generation to generation.

In modern times the bridge represents the validity of the bond of people with their land and with its history.

The annual renewal of the Q'eswachaka constitutes the central element of the cohesion of participating communities and is vital in shaping their cultural identity.
