(Pikillacta ruins, Andahuaylillas town and the Sistine chapel of the Americas)
Our Sacred Sourth tour starts by collecting you from your Hotel. We then have 40 minutes van ride to Pikillacta (flea town) ruin which is 30 kms. (18.6 miles) east of Cusco. Its altitude is 3,400 m (11,000 ft). It pre-dates the Incas. The ruins cover an area of 50 hectares (123 acres), and are surrounded by a 10 mts (33 ft) high wall that is still partly intact. It was built by the wary culture, which arose near Ayacucho. Probably constructed around 600-950 A.D. It has rough stone walls, two and three storey buildings, where food, clothing and weapons were stored. There is also an impressive Incan gateway to the Cusco valley. The gateway was used to control the access to the city.
After the ruins, we will continue towards the Andahuaylillas chapel passing through Rumicolca (Stone Storehouse) is 3 kms. (1.5 miles) father east of Pikillacta. It was a stone quarry that in Incan times served for extraction of the grey andesite stone which was used in the construction of the Incan Cusco city. Then, Piñipampa is major center of production for the red roofing tiles of Cusco.
We then visit Andahuaylillas which is about 40 kms. (25 miles) east of Cusco and its altitude is 3,100 m (10,170 ft). It is a small, attractive village. The vast main plaza is adorned with Pisonay (coral trees), palm trees and the colonial houses surrounding it. The colonial church of San Pedro is major attraction in the entire village. It is considered to be The Sistine Chapel of the Americas, because of the quality of the artworks and the stunning multicolored and gold leafed ceiling, incredible murals and some fine colonial paintings. There is no church in the city of Cusco to compare with it.
