Cusco Southern: A different choice to make tourism

Discover different historic sites near Cusco on this half-day tour. See the terraces and aqueducts built over 500 years ago in Tipon and explore the archeological site of the Wari people in Piquillacta. This half-day tour also includes a visit to the San Pedro Church in Andahuaylillas, a perfect example of Peru's colonial architecture.

 

After hotel pickup, your day will begin with a tour to neighboring Tipon, a beautiful complex of agricultural terraces, long stairs and stone canals. These terraces and aqueducts were built over 500 years ago by the Incas and are still used today for agricultural purposes.

After Tipon, you’ll visit the pre-Inca archaeological site of Piquillacta, the epicenter of the Wari culture. The Wari dominated a large part of Peru before being absorbed by the Inca Empire.

Your last stop will be at the colonial church of San Pedro de Andahuaylillas. Built at the beginning of the 17th century, the interior of this church is decorated with polychrome ceilings, numerous paintings from the Cusco School, a majestic organ, as well as intricate silverwork and baroque altars. At the end of the tour, you'll be transported back to your Cusco hotel.
