South of the city of Cusco is the place known as the South Valley. It is an important place for the development of the Inca empire. It is the perfect tour for people looking to experience archaeological sites and magnificent landscapes.
It’s one of the best examples of agriculture terraces made on Incas period these terraces are extended throughout the valley and are fed by water coming from the Apu (mountain) Pachatusan, in which you can enjoy a system of exceptional irrigation with vertical and horizontal channels on watering terrace walls, underground water flows to a source that is distributed by the channels mentioned. It was an important center of agricultural production.
Is the only pre-Incan site close to Cusco. This site made of mud was built by the Wari Empire between 700 and 900 after Christ, it stands out in the streets that form quadrants, constructions of double floor with stuccoes walls and paved floors A few meters from the area you can see a small Incan site known as Rumicolca that was used as a type of road toll for the travelers that passed through the site.
Is one of the colonial villages of the territory, in this village we find an Antique church known as “The Sistine chapel of Peru”; it’s the home of Golden altars, paintings from the Cusco art school and colorful ceilings. The chapel is simple and modest in its exterior; but once inside you will be able to see the marvelous interior decorated by artwork from the famous Cusco art school.
Returning we pass through the village of Saylla where typical food from Cusco can be found; delicious fried pork, oven baked guinea pig and a soup that has been eaten since the Incan days known as Chairo.
