[From the Original 1927 Catalog] This group of great extent is located in the second line of works further inland than the Chaiuak [Chaiwak], Tschudi and Rivero groups. It is rectangular in form and is surrounded by a great wall. On the southeastern side the wall is double and is relatively well preserved in some sections. This wall is different than the others in two essential details. It has no tomb or high main building but in place of these it has a sort of a stadium occupying about a fourth of the area. The most characteristic thing it encloses is "the Labyrinth" a group of small constructions which although raised on a strictly geometric plan give the effect of a labyrinth. A plan of this section has been made.
