It is known as the Sistine of South America because of the magnificent paintings it has and its altar chiseled in gold. After 218 km, we will have reached Raqchi, where the Inca temple of Wiracocha is located. The temple is conformed by a main building that was occupied by the Inca and annexed constructions destined to the nobility.
We will continue our way to Sicuani where we will enjoy a delicious buffet lunch.
During the trip we can appreciate the landscapes that are changing little by little, these are becoming more arid. Then we will arrive at La Raya, the highlight of our route located at 4,335 meters high. Our next destination is Pucara, where we will visit the Lithic Museum.
