We will visit the handicraft, artisanal and local produce markets, as well as the archaeological sacred remains of the Inca civilization.

  • We will then head to URUBAMBA, a beautiful town surrounded by majestic landscapes, including the snow capped mountain of Chicón. Here we will have our buffet lunch. Our next stop is OLLANTAYTAMBO, the architectural scenery is of exceptional interest for its size, style and originality of the buildings. Ollantaytambo is one of the most unusual and surprising archaeological parks in Peru, due to the variety in architecture styles and the uniqueness of each one of them. Here we will visit the archaeological remains and the typical fairs and markets.

  • End

    We will return to Cusco via CHINCHERO, another very important center of agricultural production. We will visit the church that also is home to a Cusquenian school as well as various decorative elements that maintain their originality. Every Sunday local produces sell their produce at the local market, where bartering is still a common practice.
