Acila and Holy Puma Save the Temple

The Inca civilization is an ancient culture whose disappearance is a source of sadness for all those who have a conscience. The wonderful cities they built on majestic mountains, the pumas they considered sacred, their gold and all other sources of wealth, were sadly swept off the stage of history. This story turns the hands of time back on an adventure that sees Acila, the tenacious and young daughter of the greatest architect in the city. When everyone turns a deaf ear to her, she does what all other successful people do: think carefully, apply reason, then act. The happy ending takes place deep in the woods: Acila is so proud that her smile is radiant. A beautiful story that encourages children to become passionate about history and learn about historical artifacts.
