Chinchero

Chinchero is a quaint Inca village with an impressive colonial church ushering you into what is believed to be the birthplace of the rainbow for Peruvian Culture. Here you will find another traditional Indian Sunday market, though not as large as that found in Pisaq. In Chinchero you can enjoy beautiful views of the Sacred Valley of Cusco, with the Cordillera Vilcabamba as a background, and the snow-capped peak of Salkantay adding additional glory to this picturesque landscape and your trip to Peru. The village of Chinchero is relatively unchanged from the days of the Incas, with adobe homes (bricks made from clay and straw) dotting the land and the locals going about their business in traditional dress.
