We made a quick stop here while in Peru and were struck by the local culture and the incredible vistas. There's lots of history here, but also a lot of ordinary people going about there daily lives. Well worth a stop.

I initially thought that this was going to be a fairly uneventful stop, we started with a weaving demonstration which was interesting and where we were shown the traditional process of cleaning, spinning, dying, and weaving. After that we walked up to the main plaza where there was a nice looking wall and a church that I wasn't really interested... More

Old Colonial Church and Village offer a nice place to stop between Ollantaytambo and Cusco... The village has lots of boutiques selling the typical touristy stuff..

The town is small and dusty, a lot of garbage in the road, just the plaza to see in the Sunday market. The arts and crafts centers where you are taken by the tour guides are not worth at all. Much better the lively market at Pisaq

We were taken to see the local people show us a demonstration of how they shear, clean, dye and weave the alpaca wool. We were given mint tea, to drink and sampled some of their local fare, including guinea pig!

We stopped here on the way to Cusco to check out the market, town and square. We arrived around 10am and were the only people for a couple hours so show up early if you want the place to yourself. Definitely worth checking out if you're coming from the Sacred Valley and headed towards Cusco

Chinchero is a nice place. Our tour guide took us to a market, and we had a very special visit to a school. The children were the sweetest second grade kids and the highlight of the day. They sang two songs for us and we repaid the favor with the hokey pokey and twinkle, twinkle little star. Our guide, Al... More

This city has been inhabited for over 500 years! It has a Catholic Church built in 1604. There are many terraces and a lot of history.

A town based around the merchants and market. We called by at Noon on a Thursday, so no market, and had the place pretty much to ourselves. I have done a separate review under the Mercado 'Things to do' listing but post a picture of two Llamas here for amusement.
