Activity 1: ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE CHINCHERO

After leaving Cusco in the morning, we visited for the first time the interactive operations of handicrafts in the Archaeological Site of Chinchero (an artistic textile production, color, iconography, with the fabrics that tell the history of these communities.) We continue towards the  Archaeological sites of Cheqoq and Moray, places where agricultural experimentation was carried out in Inca times, in Maras and in the colonial temple, we continued with a visit to Salinas de Salineras, which were worked and administered by the local community.

After having heard the explanations of the professional guides, we have the typical lunch for the Sumak Huaycuy Women’s Association Llankaska Weaving. They maintain the technology of preparation of typical foods in the Peruvian Andes that they inherited from their ancestors, using natural products of the zone provided by the local farmers. While you enjoy this typical meal, you will learn about the importance of Andean products that are planted and harvested in harmony with Mother Earth.

Return to Cusco in the afternoon.
