After the passage of the American
satellite Landsat II, with the top of Peru, the end of the year 1975, then the
localization of "the pyramides", a few months later - in May 1976 -,

stereotypes, the interest rebounds suddenly, at the end of the decade, to find
this lost city.

not as high as the pyramids. They are located at the south, but form part of the
unit. High semicircular edges are drawn up finally at each end of the complex;
perhaps it acts walls".
noticed also other formations, forms and of size different, but always laid out
in a symmetrical way, according to a plan established obviously well.
