Ep. 49: The Road to Cajamarca

Pizarro and his men on the Capac Nan heading towards Cajamarca – The Lost History of the Incas

Reinvigorated by what was seen at Tumbez, Pizarro seeks an audience at the Spanish Court.  Returning to Peru with new titles and the Spanish Court’s blessing to conquer lands, Pizarro seeks to determine who is the leader of this land he is now governor of.  The conquistador learns that his answer is waiting for him in a town called Cajamarca.  The only trick is getting there, without getting killed.

“Rimmed by mountains, Cajamarca’s valley spreads almost four miles between town and Inca camp. As Atahualpa relaxed at his bath, the Spaniards, greatly outnumbered, devised a strategy to capture him.” – From: The Inca and their Timeless Land.
