MORE DETAILS ABOUT THE PLACES YOU’LL VISIT ON THIS TOUR:
This impressive agricultural complex is located at the base of the Pachatusan Mountain, which is an important protective Apu, or mountain spirit, in the Andean religión. It contains terraces that are still preserved, as well as walls of finely carved stones, but the most incredible feature of this site is its irrigation system.
Once a significant urban center during the time of the Pre-Incan Wari Empire, this archeological site contains thousands of constructions, including plazas, colcas (silos used to store food), yards, homes, temples, and long, wides streets. Some buildings were as many as four stories high.
This typical Andean village dates from colonial times, and is notable for its colonial architecture, the most notable of which is its colonial Catholic chapel. The Chapel, known as the Sistine Chapel of Cusco, contains breathtaking decoration and murals from the 17th and 18th centuries.
