DAY 4 – VALLE SUR

Pick up from the hotel, guided tour to three important places, we will start with the so called “Sistine Chapel of America”, (due to the quality of the works of art found inside) the Church of Andahuaylillas, located in the Village of the same name, located approximately 40 km. (25 miles) east of the city of Cusco at an altitude of 3100 meters. (10170 feet).


A walk through its Main Square that is adorned with “pisonay” (coral trees) and palm trees. We continue our journey towards Tipón National Archaeological Complex located towards the east of the City of Cusco; covering a territory of approximately 2200 hectares.


The original Quechua name of the place is unknown. You can see diverse groups of royal rooms that were built by the Inca Wiraqocha as a home and refuge for his father YawarWakaq. This group of villages are at an altitude of 3500 meters. (11480 feet). There is also a large impressive cultivation area containing 12 very fertile terraces that are currently cultivated, whose walls were built with well-carved stones. Even more impressive is the irrigation system that is still serving agriculture and the advantage is the water intake in the spring season. They have worked the stones that channel the river finely calculated and sometimes with almost vertical drops that all together constitute a hydraulic engineering work. Some sources must have ceremonial functions. Due to its location and the presence of a surrounding wall, Tipón must have been a very exclusive place. Towards the southwest of this group, in the almost vertical mountain surface is the cemetery named “Pitopuqyo” that today has looted tombs. In this place there were large amounts of cultural remains, today you can find many pieces of broken pottery.


To end the tour, a guided visit to the Archaeological Complex of Pikillacta that covers an area of ​​3421 hectares (8453 acres), and is located in the province of Quispicanchis, east of the city of Cusco approximately 32 km (20 miles). On the way you can see a wonderful view of the Wakarpay lagoon that is at an altitude of approximately 3200 meters. (10500 feet). “Pikillaqta” is a Quechua word that means “lousy people” (piki = louse; llaqta = people); However, that is not the original name of the zone or the main site, its previous name is unknown; although, many chroniclers refer to this area with the name of “Muyuna”, “Muyna” or “Mohina”. It seems that the site started being called “Pikillaqta” from the last years of the colonial period or at the beginning of the republic; his reason is unknown. The pre-Hispanic site of Pikillaqta is located at 3350 meters. (11,000 feet) and belonged to a city of the Wari Culture developed in today’s Ayacucho.
