Come and enjoy an impressive Full day tour through one of the deepest canyons in the world. Disconnect at least one day from the city and fully enjoy the nature that surrounds this valley. Our guide will show you all the beauties such as the huge birds, beautiful alpacas and vicuñas and more than 79 different types of cactus. Our tour starts very early to be able to arrive on time at the Condor's Cross and watch the condors flying over our heads, follow our route to different tiny towns and of course visit the relaxing hot springs.

The monastery is like a city inside the city. You can get lost within the colorful painted walls of the complex and take amazing pictures without other tourists in them.

Really an amazing site. If possible try to get a guide or book to tell you what you’re seeing. For example, even though this cloistered assembly of buildings was (and is still) for women, it’s properly a monastery, not a nunnery (just a little hint of stuff that is not what you

There are places at a lower cost in order to learn and see colonial art, and architecture, somehow, it's up to you, travelers, as a personal experience all, go wrong since you go a buy your admission ticket, the man at the front desk takes his time(way too slow), and inside you
