We will pick you up from your hotel to have a guided tour in the south valley where you can visit the following places:
Tipon: A large impressive cultivation area containing 12 terraces that are currently cultivated, whose walls were built with finely carved stones. Even more impressive is the irrigation system that is still serving agriculture and the advantage is the water intake in the spring season.
“Piquillacta” or “Piki Llaqta” was one of the most important bodybuilding administrative centers of the Wari (or Huari) culture, between the 6th and 9th centuries of our era, and represents the planned Wari urbanism by excellence. The walls of the houses are covered with plaster and some are painted with well-defined anthropomorphic motifs, and there is also evidence that many buildings were two or even three stories high, giving the impression that their inhabitants were very well developed in many aspects.
Andahuaylillas: Finally, we will arrive at the town of Andahuaylillas where we will visit its most valuable jewel, the Church of Andahuaylillas, it is considered as “The Sistine Chapel of America” due to the quality of works found in the interior. In the environments, there are remains of Inca construction. The decorations are ostentatious, and the impressive paintings, gold leaves and the famous baroque paintings of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries of the Cusco school must be noted that the construction took place in two periods.
On the way back, we will go through Saylla, a typical Cusquenian village where you can enjoy the delicious pork rinds (optional). We will be returning to the city of Cusco at approximately 03:30 p.m
