Originally an imperious title, later, the name of the inhabitants of the Inca Empire in the highlands of Peru.

From the very outset towards the late 11th century, the Inca Empire was located only in the city of Cuzco, northwest of Lake Titicaca. It had expanded continuously and reached an area that extended from the present northern border of Ecuador to the Rio Maule in Chile until the arrival of the Spaniards in 1532.

The Inca constructed great buildings, where practicality and usability were in the foreground. The ornaments were only on gates and niches. In contrast, goldsmith's and ceramic art brought forth an extensive heritage that can be admired today in museums all over the world.
