Highlights

Map The southeast valley encompasses one of the most precious heritage of Cusco history, starting from the pre-Inca times with the Wari empire, thus showing the archaeological complex of Pikillacta, a warrior empire that gave birth to the Inca civilization. You can appreciate the architecture of Tipon, the hydraulic system at its best, and Rumiqolqa. Finally, from the obliged union of Andean blood with Spanish, the mestizo of today was born, and thus came the church of Andahuaylillas, a masterpiece in mural painting of the artists of 18th century Cusco school.
