The Pambamarca is an eroded stratovolcano in the Central Cordillera of the northern Ecuadorian Andes in the northeast of Pichincha.

The Pambamarca Fortress Complex is a large installation of many Inca fortresses located on the peaks and ridges of the extinct Pambamarca stratovolcano. Current research by the Pambamarca Archaeological Project Project Web Sitehas uncovered pre-Inka fortresses at the base of Pambamarca. The existence of two types of forts and the recovery of many armaments is suggestive of a pre-Columbian borderland, which is an important and rare find in New World archaeology.
