About
ALQA is an art gallery focused on the conservation and dissemination of the traditional artistic expressions of the indigenous high andean communities. Our work not only represents an exquisite curation, but also a meticulous research that allows, through a considerable historical and social burden, to create a chain of relationships between all the pieces on exhibition, allowing the recontextualization and recovery of them in order to reinforce and place value on the cultural identity of the artists and their communities of origin.

Our favorite shopping experience!
Feb 2020
We loved stumbling upon this gorgeous Art Gallery! The owner was super informative, patient and hospitable. We bought many artisan Andean treasures including gorgeous tapestries, poncho's and hats while sipping on yummy local Kombucha. We got home and wished we had bought more! We didn't see anything else that compared the rest of our trip! We arrived late and they let us take our time and make decisions as there are many options to choose from. Quality was top notch and we hope to make it back again in the future! Thank you ALQA for sharing your master artisans with us! Don't miss this Gallery!

Friendly Interactions and Quality Goods!
Jan 2020
You've got to check out ALQA Gallery if you're in Ollantaytambo! The staff there is so very friendly. The vibe is chill, no one is there to push any sales on you. They have beer on tap to sip while you explore the wide variety of artwork and hand made goods sourced from Andean towns and villages located throughout the Sacred Valley. They have one of a kind photographic prints, sculptures, beautifully made hats and much more!

Fabulous experience
Dec 2019 • Friends
The gallery is more than the art which is phenomenal. It is an experience with the collectors and other art enthusiasts who find their way to this little gallery tucked away on a side street just off the main plaza. We enjoyed craft beer, good conversation and learned so much about the ancient textile art and craft of weaving, Peruvian carved gourds and silver jewelry. We also got to meet the family. What a fabulous experience!

We loved stumbling upon this hidden gem of an art gallery. The two hosts were so lovely in telling us about the unique pieces in the gallery and their travels to find each one. A must visit in Ollantaytambo!

Beautiful Shop Caring Owners

We went in for coffee and ended staying two hours to the owners who described their mission to preserve tradition weaving practices. We left purchasing two textile pieces that we cherish.
