Trip could start in the morning or afternoon as well, our meeting point will be at the main square. Once ready, we need to drive to:

 

Andahualillas, Name which is coming from Quechua word Anta = cooper , Huaylla = marsh, which mean "The Marsh which shine as copper",  town to see the Church as known "the sixtina of America", because the painted walls having nice story all inspired by the holy bible. Painted once the Spanish arrived to Inca empire, nice and big retable cover by the famous PAN DE ORO, i mean gold, after explore the church and the Andahuaylillas square. We are turning back to Cusco on the way we'll have chance to see:

 

PIÑIPAMPA. - Is a little town which has a lot experience making "Tiles" for roofs.

 

PIKILLAQTA.- Piki = little, small / llaqta = town, so this mean "Little Town", probably built before the Quechuas, architectural style is Pircado or Rustical as well, different style some like Spaniards.

 

PIKILLAQTA GATE CONTROL. - is because at Inca time probably was working as main gate to enter to Cusco City at Inca time. After see Pre-Inca building let's see something natural, because will close is

 

"HUACARPAY LAGOON".- Chronicles are talking about a Golden Chain is at the deep of lake, Golden chain which is big more than border of main square of Cusco, but nowadays this lagoon is house or habitat of hundreds birds which do a migration every year.
