Our first stop is the Chinchero village; here you will learn how local weavers transform alpaca and sheep’s wool into fine fabrics by joining a weaving demonstration. From there, we will go to the archeological site.

After visiting this attraction, we will continue to Moray, the ancient laboratory of the Incas. This site is composed of four circular depressions on the ground, which are thought to have been used by the Incas as an agricultural experimental station.
