Itinerary

1st StopCusco - Tipon

Tipon archaelogical park is located 26km southeast of Cusco.

At the old adobe church along the main road, we turn left up a paved road that winds uphill for approximately 3.5 km (10 minutes drive).

Tipon is one of the most impressive Inca archeological sites where one can see a series of terraces and irrigation canals.

Tipon was a ceremonial center where water was channeled through underground passages from the Pachatusan mountain above the site.

Tipon hydraulic architecture is one of the most impressive across the Inca's territory

 

2nd StopTipon - Pikillaqta

Piquillacta is located 33 km southeast of Cusco.

This was one of the most important cities of the Wari Culture, who were later conquered by the powerful Incas around 1200 A.D. The name means “The City of Fleas”.

The entire city was enclosed by walls made up of a mixture of stone and earth with the interiors of the buildings being more finely finished.

Piquillaqta has more than 700 structures and some walls standing almost 12 meters high in places. Across from Piquillacta is the beautiful lake Huacarpay, home to many species of local fauna.

One of the many restored streets found in Pikillacta's archaeological site.

3rd StopPikillaqta -Andahuaylillas

The most important attraction for visitors is the San Pedro de Andahuaylillas Church, considered to be the “Sistine Chapel of the Americas” due to the quality of its art.

Built at the beginning of XVII century, the inside of the temple is decorated with murals by Luis Riaño representing the paths to glory and to hell.

In addition, this church has a majestic piano, numerous canvases of the Academy of Cusco, exquisite silverwork and baroque altars.

To do the Cusco south valley tour the boleto turistico is required.

St. Peter's church in Andahuaylillas stores many important pieces of history within it.
