Chinchero is famous for its Sunday market, where even today it is possible to see native weavers in a private weaving demonstrations and vestiges of its great past, particularly popular with those interested in Andean textiles.
We then visit The Church has impressive works of art from Cusco school. It has a colonial fresco around the portico. Inside it is very beautiful, with entirely painted walls and ceiling of multicolored flowers and patterns, all made with natural pigments.
After the church visit. We will walk around The Incan Place must have been very important because its facade presents openings of triple jamp that by themselves indicate its category.
