The South Valley
Prol. Av. de la Cultura 1906, Cusco, Peru
The South ValleyCalled Valle Sur, this region south of Cusco is rich in Inca sites and breathtaking scenery. The aqueducts and canals at Tipon, in particular, will have you marveling at pre-Columbian hydraulic ingenuity. Pikillacta, a pre-Inca Wari site, is impressive for its buildings and sheer scale. San Pedro Apostol church at Andahuaylillas is nicknamed the “Sistine Chapel of the Andes” for murals and its intricately frescoed ceiling. The area is well worth a visit.
