This is a day trip to some of the impressive sites outside of Cusco City. Andahuaylillas is a small village famous for its church, Iglesia de San Pedro, known as the "Sistine Chapel of the Americas". Piquillacta is a well-preserved archaeological site from the Wari period, a pre-Inca culture. Tipon is an impressive example of Inca ingenuity and agricultural innovation.

Cusco - Andahuaylillas - Piquillacta - Tipon - Cusco

We leave from Cusco at 9:00 AM to the town of Andahuaylillas (about 40 minutes by car) and the Sistine Chapel of the Americas. We will see art in the Cusco style that includes amazing unique paintings and murals showcased throughout the church as well as embroideries and carved wooden altars.

Our next stop is Piquillacta, the pre-Inca ruins of the Wari that lent much of their technology and culture to the Inca. 

Later the tour takes us to Tipon, which was believed to be an agricultural laboratory and boasts an impressive irrigation system that flows throughout the entire site. The nearby town of the same name is also known for its "cuyerias" where cuy (guinea pigs) are slow roasted in large clay ovens.

If you're interested, we can stop to try this traditional Peruvian cuisine (not included in the price of the tour) and then return to Cusco at around 4:00 PM.
