The first destination for today is Chinchero, a small and colorful town with an important Incan archeological site, built towards the end of the 1400’s, as well as a beautiful and traditional church. You will visit “Urpi”, a famous textile center where the townspeople have preserved traditional Andean weaving techniques and where they’ll also show you how to obtain the bright color they put into their fabrics. On your way to Ollantaytambo, you will stop at the Racchi viewpoint, where you’ll enjoy some of the best views of the Sacred Valley. Then, lunch will be served at a local restaurant.

Widely known for its terraces (dug into the mountainsides for agricultural purposes), Ollantaytamno was a fortress that also served as a temple. We will then continue to the adjacent town of Ollantaytambo, “a living Inca city”, the best existing example of the Incan urban planning, with beautiful stone streets that have been inhabited since the 13th century.
