CUSCO TO PUNO ITINERARY

08:30am
Andahuaylillas "Sistine Chapel of America" | 3122 m.a.s.l.

The small town of Andahuaylillas is 40 km southeast of Cusco. It's one of those places where there isnīt much to do or see except for that hidden gem that makes the trip well worth it. And if you like getting lost wandering the streets of a small but picturesque town then you must visit Andahuaylillas.

Cusco to Puno - Andahuaylillas

There, you'll find the church of San Pedro Apostol de Andahuaylillas, built by the Jesuits in the 16th century. Like other Spanish and religious constructions of the time, it was built on top of a huaca, or sacred place for the Incas. Made out of adobe and brick, the church is a small structure consisting of one nave, apse and bell tower. But there's a reason why it's known as the Sistine Chapel of America.

Cusco to Puno - Andahuaylillas

11:00am
Raqchi "Temple of Wiracocha" | 3450 m.a.s.l.

The most important building inside the complex is the "Wiracocha temple" that according to the old chroniclers was built by the Inca Wiracocha in honour to the Superior God invisible for the Andean people: "Apu Kon Titi Wiracocha". The "temple of Wiracocha" is a great construction for that age. Architectonically it is classified as "Kallanka", that is, a high building completely covered with straw (wood and "ichu"). Externally it is 92 meters long (302 feet) and 25.25 meter wide (83 feet).

15:30pm
Pukara | 3900 m.a.s.l.

Pukara was the first regional population center in the northern Lake Titicaca Basin during the Late Formative Period (500 BC- AD 200), providing valuable insights into the origins of Andean civilization in the highlands. During its peak it covered over a square kilometer and housed thousands of bureaucrats, priests, artisans, farmers, herders, and possibly warriors. The Pukara style is identified by impressive monolithic sculptures with a variety of geometric, zoomorphic, and anthropomorphic images plus intricate, multi-colored pottery in a variety of ritual and domestic forms.

Cusco to Puno - Pukara

As one can imagine, the size and complexity of Pukara plus its rich material culture have drawn attention by archaeologists for almost a century. Major excavations projects were conducted in 1939 (Alfred Kidder II of Harvard University), in the 1970s (Plan Copesco), and have continued over the last decade (Klarich et al.).
