The weaving’s town of Chinchero has a church that dates back to the 1600s. Its paintings and frescoes are well preserved. Chinchero is a picturesque community that combines both Inca and colonial architecture. We will observe a demonstration of the traditional weaving process. After this visit, we drive to Moray, en route we enjoy our picnic lunch.
Here we visit one of the most interesting of the Inca constructions – believed to have been an agricultural experiment station. About 7 km to the southwest of Maras The Incas created their micro-climate to adapt the plants to this altitude. Afterward, we go to our glamping in Moray Misminay where we meet our local family. They show us a comfortable tent. Enjoy from your tent panoramic views of immense crop fields and majestic snow peaks in an Andean rural town. You will not want to miss the sunrise when the sun appears behind the mountains in front of you. María and Mario Mayhua are a cheerful and very kind couple from Misminay. They will show you the surroundings of this wonderful place and will surprise you with delicious typical dishes.
In the afternoon we learn how to make adobe bricks. The blocks of adobe used for the construction of the houses are the material par excellence of the Andes. The adobe allows us to have resistant houses, easy to make and the most important thing is that it retains the heat on cold nights. We invite you to see how the land can serve as a construction material.
