With this Sunday tour, we will take you off the beaten path, to the local highland communities of Ocongate, Ccatcca and Tinki. You will be able to wander around their weekly Sunday markets and observe their local life and traditions. We will also take you to the Andahuaylillas Church, known as the Andean Sistine Chapel, always following stunning landscape.
Today, we will drive you to the south of Cusco passing small villages and the Huacarpay and Urcos Lakes before making a visit to the Andahuaylillas Church, known as the Andean Sistine Chapel, where you will see intriguing 16th, 17th and 18th century mural paintings and altars completely decorated in gold. We will then continue by making a steep climb from 3200m (10,500ft) to 4200m (13,800ft) into the highland communities of Ocongate, Ccatcca and Tinki. You will step back in time as locals continue to dress in their traditional clothing and hold weekly markets. These communities are very traditional in their culture and you will not experience a place like this anywhere else. After this visit, we will make our way back to Cusco driving through towns known for their typical foods. We will stop at Tipón which specializes in guinea pig, Saylla for chicharron and Oropesawhich for Andean bread.
