Tipón – Pikillacta – Andahuaylillas

Having picked you up from your hotel, we’ll head toward the village of Tipón, an archaeological compound from the Inca Period. There, we’ll participate in a guided tour, during which we’ll be able to explore Tipon’s exceptional irrigation system of vertical and horizontal canals running along Andean terraces. The water surges from underground, spouts through a fountain, and is distributed through a system of canals. Tipón used to be an important religious and agricultural production center.

Afterward, we’ll visit the archaeological complex of Pikillacta, which dates back to Pre-Inca times and was an administrative center of the Wari Empire. It features cobbled streets (square-shaped blocks) and two-story buildings with plaster-covered walls and paved floors.

Traveling southward, we’ll arrive at the village of Andahuaylillas. In the main square of this traditional Andean village, there is a colonial church called the “Sistine Chapel of America” due to the precious baroque paintings that adorn its ceiling and walls. This is the last place we’ll visit on our circuit. In the late afternoon, we’ll return to Cusco.
