Their important occupation began when the Inkan nobles of Cusco were stripped of their palaces in Qosqo and had to leave to settle in other small towns like Maras.

These are gigantic natural depressions or holes in the surface of the land that were used to build terraces or agricultural platforms with their respective irrigation channels in their contours. It is therefore a prototype of a greenhouse or biological experimental station that was quite advanced in its time and helped the American man of antiquity to inherit 60% of the vegetable products that he consumes from humanity, that the Andean man consumes a thousand and a half different varieties of potatoes, a hundred and a half corn, and many other products.
