chinchero, SALT FLATS & MORAy

On the way to the Sacred Valley, these three attractions are unmissable.  

Among the wilder Incan sites is the impressively deep amphitheater - like terracing of Moray, is a fascinating spectacle.

We'll take you from the hotel to start our trip at around 08:30 in the morning taking the route to the Sacred Valley to first stop in Chinchero which is a town that combines Inca ruins with a colonial church, come wonderful mountain views and colorful market. A bit further we start going through crops and fields towards our next destinations. In the town of Chinchero you'll find the Church of Our Lady of Monserrat built in 1607. On the Tupac Yupanqui palace, we will also see “Inca Andenes” and its market of artisans.

After an about 30 minute ride from Chinchero, we'll get to Moray, a huge display of ring shaped terraces will catch your attention. These terraces, which are carved deep into the earth in a bowl shape, were thought to be used to determine the optimal conditions for growing crops. There are three amphitheater-like terraces made by the Incas around the area. Different levels of concentric terraces are carved into a huge earthen bowl, each layer of which apparently has his own microclimate, according to how deep into the bowl it is. The farming rings of Moray are stunningly perfect , a greatness you'll always remember.

After our visit to Moray, we now get to Maras to visit the salt flats or salt mines where its habitants continue taking advantage of the salty water. An association of the villagers gives all of them the opportunity to trade souvenirs and handmade sculptures made of salt. The landscape of about 4000 flats can be seen from the top of the place. Later on we'll go back to Cusco and leave you at your hotel.

PLACES VISITED

⟩ Archeological irrigation system of Tipon
⟩ Archeological site of Piquillacta.
⟩ Sistine Chapel of America of Andahuaylillas.

The pick up time from the hotel is around 9:00 a.m. and we drive in our private van towards our destination. We'll visit the Saint Peter church of Andahuaylillas, considered as the “Sistine Chapel of America". It was built by the Order of the Jesuits at the end of the 16th century. Its architectural structure is typical for village churches. Its walls are wide like all the colonial buildings, made of sun-dried mud-bricks also known as adobe, the facade is decorated with magnificent murals, and two large stone columns at the main entrance. The decoration of its interior is unique and impressive. We can first mention a picture of the “Assumption of the Virgin,” painted by the Spanish historical painter Esteban Murillo.

We'll also visit Piquillacta, it is the only pre-Incan site of importance near Cusco. The Huari culture built the complex, a huge ceremonial center. The two-story adobe buildings, of rather rudimentary masonry, aren't in partiularly good shape, although they are surrounded by a defensive wall.

Our journey also includes the spectacular archaeological site of Tipon, where we will see the best of Inca hydraulic water work system. There are also baths, atemple complex, and irrigation canals and aqueducts that further reveal the engineering prowess of the Incas. On the way back from Tipon, you'll be able to go through the restaurants that serve a magnificent guinea pig, an adventurous dish to taste.
