·         Colonial Church of Andahuaylillas Known as the “Sistine Chapel of America,” the church is one of the best expressions of colonial and religious architecture in the 17th Century due to the ornate and exquisite decorations of the chapel’s interior that also include a profusion of wall paintings on its walls and ceilings.

·         Archaeological Center of Raqchi Known as the “Temple of the God Wiracocha,” this archaeological complex was in reality what is called tambo – that is, to say, it was used for commercial sales – similar to a market; in this archaeological center, you will have the opportunity to see homes, temples, palaces, astronomical observatories, food deposits, and walls. The archaeological complex is one of the most important structures of the Inkan Imperial Empire and is characterized by its rare and extraordinary architectural technique – completely different from the rest of the Inkan constructions.
