  • Taste and knowledge: a journey inside the world of pre-Columbian food

    A journey through the world of pre-Columbian food starting from the early domestication processes in the Andes. It explores the traces present in small fragments and representations in ceramic and lithic pieces used as tableware six thousand years ago by the Valdivia Culture (4000-1500 B.C.). Together with scientific, historical and audiovisual documents, they will allow us to approach the extraordinary world of pre-Columbian food.
