We visited Chinchero with our own guide and got to see the way all the textiles are made as well as visit the terraces and walk through the incredibly well built streets. A very interesting and historical town.

We had an authentic Peruvian lunch and attended a demonstration of making textiles from handwoven alpaca wool, naturally dyed from plant, minreals, and insects. Local women sell their handmade items too.

Very surprised to find the site covered such a large area. Good examples of the difference in terracing for both farming and just for support. The quality of the original stone work is truly amazing and the base for most of the original structures are...More
