    Chincheros Church

    Right on top the Inca ruins lies a beautiful church build by the Spaniards. The interiors are breathless, taking in many features of the region as well as the deep Spanish roots. Take your time to apreciate the inside, as well as the ruins in the outside.

    Chincheros Ruinas

    Long before the Spaniards conqured the new world, the Inca empire had build an enormous complex and settlment in present day Chincheros. The ruins stand as a witness to the amazing Incaic architecture that still stands to this date. Take a breather from the hard days of travel and stroll around the ruins of Chincheros.

    You can walk around the square and the locals are waiting for you to pass by with their crafts for sale. There is views over the surrounding mountains, views on the Inca religious site and take a peek on the surrounding streets.

    Like in any touristy site, the locals are present to sell you everything you ever wanted: Jewellery, weaved articles, clothing, pottery and everything in between. Bartering is the rule and approach them only if interested, otherwise they will be after you even from your bus seat!!!

    Picture with llama

    uncooperating llama

    You'll have chances elsewhere also, but this is our first opportunity to take picture with the llama. This one was not very cooperative, but we managed to take a few good picture. We gave the woman s/2 for the photo-op.

    amazing maize

    Their corn has giant kernels! But don't expect them to taste like the juicy sweat corn that we're used to. They tasted a little bit dry, chewy and starchy. Somtimes they also give you a slice of cheese and some sauce with it.

    The market, of course... Le marche bien sur ...

    No picture - Pas de photo

    The "boleto turistico" allows you to visit the church, but it's Chinchero's market that you have to come to visit, actually. A very typical one...

    Le "boleto turistico" vous permet de visiter l'eglise, mais c'est le marche que vous etes en realite venu voir... Il est des plus typiques...

    We didn't go on the market day, but some of the vendors were there. It was more intimate than Pisac.
