Chinchero, Chinchero, PeruMap

This village is built on the historic remains of the ancient "Hacienda" of Tupac Inca Yupanqui. The hillside surrounding Chinchero was transformed into a group of terraces lined by typical Incan stone walls. Large rooms were built above the terraces and were used for administrative and religious functions. Today, you will find colonial bell towers that have been built over the Incan ruins. The colorful Sunday market in Chinchero is where the communities of the region exchange their agricultural products and handicrafts.
