DÍA COMPLETO

Recojo del hotel, visita guiada a tres lugares importantes, comenzaremos con la “Capilla Sixtina de América”, (debido a la calidad de las obras de arte encontradas en su interior) la Iglesia de Andahuaylillas, ubicada en el Pueblo de la misma nombre, ubicado aproximadamente a 40 km (25 millas) al este de la ciudad del Cusco a una altitud de 3100 mts. (10170 pies).

Un paseo por su plaza principal adornada con “pisonay” (árboles de coral) y palmeras. Continuamos nuestro viaje hacia el Complejo Arqueológico Nacional de Tipón ubicado al este de la Ciudad del Cusco; cubriendo un área de aproximadamente 2200 hectáreas.

The original Quechua name of the place is unknown. You can see various groups of royal rooms that were built by the Inca Wiraqocha as a dwelling and shelter for his father YawarWakaq. This group of villages are at an altitude of 3500 mts. (11480 feet). In addition there is a great space of impressive culture that contains 12 very fertile terraces that at the moment are cultivated, whose walls were constructed with stones well carved. Even more impressive is the irrigation system that is still serving agriculture and the advantage is the intake of water in the spring season. Finely calculated stones have been worked on, and sometimes with nearly vertical falls, which together constitute a hydraulic engineering work. Some sources must have ceremonial functions. Due to its location and the presence of a surrounding wall Tipon must have been a very unique site. To the southwest of this group, on the almost vertical mountainous surface is the cemetery named “Pitopuqyo” which today has looted tombs. In this place there were great quantities of cultural vestiges, at the moment one can find many pieces of broken ceramics.

To finish the tour, visit the Pikillacta Archaeological Complex which covers an area of ​​3421 hectares (8453 acres), and is located in the province of Quispicanchis, to the east of the city of Cusco approximately 32 km (20 miles). On the way you can see a wonderful view of the Wakarpay lagoon which is located at an altitude of approximately 3200 mts. (10500 feet). “Pikillaqta” is a compound Quechua word meaning “lousy village” (piki = louse; llaqta = village); 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 as “Muyuna”, “Muyna” or “Mohina”. It seems that the site began calling itself “Pikillaqta” from the last years of the colonial era or at the beginning of the republic; its reason is unknown. The prehispanic site of Pikillaqta is located at 3350 mts. (11000 feet) and belonged to a city of the Wari Culture developed in Ayacucho today.
