Ep. 50: Cajamarca

Pizarro and his men entered the town of Cajamarca on November 15th, 1532 with around two-hundred men.  Meanwhile, Atahualpa was on the opposite side of the valley with tens of thousands of soldiers.  Twenty-four hours later, the Sapa Inca would be Pizarro’s prisoner.

“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.
