Itinerary Tour to the Sacred Valley Southern Area

Visit to Tipón, Pikillaqta & Andahuaylillas

Our excursion begins with a pickup from your hotel in Cusco at approximately 9am in order to begin our trip. We’ll first head to the small town of Tipón to visit its archeological center of the same name. This site boasts impressive hydraulic engineering; it’s complete with fountains and canals which still function, distributing water to each embankment. After our guided visit of these Inca ruins, we’ll continue to the pre-Incan site of Pikillacta, a rare example of ancient urban planning. The guide will share with us the history of these ruins, from whose location we’ll have some nice views of the surrounding valley.

Our final stop is the small town of Andahuaylillas to visit its San Pedro church, which is often referred to as “the Sistine Chapel of America”. Passing through its pentagonal door, we’ll see that its simple white adobe exterior hides a surprising interior that is completely covered in murals, gold leaf, and famously ornate 16th- and 17th-century baroque paintings from the Cusco School. After a guided visit of the church, we’ll begin the return trip back to the city of Cusco.
