DESCRIPTION OF THE PLACES TO VISIT

Temple of Andahuaylillas

Located at a distance of about 41 kilometers from Cusco’s city. The colonial church of Andahuaylillas boasts a wonderful interior decoration of mural paintings and art canvasses dedicated to St Peter and St Paul belonging to the Cuzco school of the eighteenth century. Also it has beautiful golden altars of baroque style dedicated to various saints and virgins.and is without any doubt one of the most beautiful chapels of the Peruvian colonial art, considered by many as the Sistine chapel of America.

Pikillacta

The pre-inca Pikillacta Citadel belonged to the Wari Empire and had as its main centre the Department of Ayacucho including the Cusco area.The Pikillacta Citadel was built around the year 750 dc. And it stands out for the harmonic and symmetrical distribution of its buildings separated by streets perfectly aligned and distributed by sectors, such as the main square, its urban and religious area, besides having a well-organized system of roads. Its architecture is simple with rustic style walls, it was elaborate with stone settled on mud mortar and some of its most important buildings were plastered with gypsum and boast a considerable height. Pikillacta means the village of fleas in the quechua language and it was put in the colonial era due to the amount of existing buildings.

Tipon

The archaeological site of Tipon is located at 23 kilometers to the south of the city of Cusco, in the district of Oropesa, and shows the excellence Inca engineering to build their agricultural terraces, beautifully distributed and irrigated by canals of water carefully worked. The water was brought from the mountain through canals and aqueducts built with great skill, to provide the city with this vital element, there are also some water sources wonderfully worked that probably were used as places of worship to the water.
