Start your journey in Tipón, a perfectly preserved archaeological site, located 27 kilometres from the city of Cusco. Near the village of the same name, where an impressive rural colony mansion stands (1650), there are 12 terraces still cultivated, some enclosures and an irrigation system considered a masterpiece of hydraulic engineering, still used by the surrounding population. Then continue to Pikillacta, corresponding to the Wari culture, considered one of the best preserved pre-Inca cities of Peru. Among its 700 structures, covering more than 3 thousand hectares, there are stone and mud buildings of two and three floors, distinct terrace work and the head of a condor carved in a rock. Finally, visit Andahuaylillas, a town located 40 kilometres from Cusco that has the Church of Andahuaylillas as its main attraction. Also called "The Sistine Chapel of America", due to the impressive quality of the art pieces found in it. Today it has an original pipe organ recently restored.
