The day starts with an early morning rise to transfer to Cusco train station for a three hour train journey to the famous Inca Citadel of Machu Picchu, also known as "The Lost City of the Incas".

On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, we´ll have the opportunity to bargain with vendors or stroll at the Pisac's typical Indian market, with a catholic mass service on Sunday (celebrated in Quechua, the native language). Lunch at a local restaurant in the Sacred Valley.
In the afternoon pass through Calca and Urubamba towns to arrive to the Inca Fortress and Citadel of Ollantaytambo, which was built to guard the entry of this part of the valley and protect it from enemies of the lower jungles; consisting in a series of superimposed terraces of carved stones accessed by long staircases. We will have the opportunity to walk through the quaint streets of the nearby town, religious and agricultural centre during the Inca Empire, and get a clear idea of the military strategy against possible invasions. On our way back to Cusco we will visit the picturesque Andean village of Chinchero where the remains of what was the royal hacienda of Tupac Inca Yupanqui lies. Admire its well preserved Inca Wall at the Main Square, visit the beautiful colonial temple built on Inca foundations, with interesting frescoes on the portico. Back to Cusco in the afternoon.

Day 5: Cusco – Maras – Moray – Salts Mines. (B)
At 09.00 am excursion to Maras in the route view beautiful mountains and snows Chicon, Veronica, Pitusiray and Sawaysiray. Then, visit the amphitheatre of Moray constituted by agricultural terraces in circular form, used by the Incas to experience and to domesticate the plants that soon seeded in other places of the empire. (This place is difficult during the months of rains - of November to March)
Following a dirt road for 4 Km one arrives at the Inca Salt Mines. From the mountains emerges a spring of lukewarm water with a high density of salt, which the local peasants have canalized and distribute to more than 5000 wells where the liquid evaporates, leaving behind a crust, which is periodically extracted for its processing and commerce. For approximately one hour one descends along a path, which borders the wells to reach the banks of the Urubamba River. Here one can visit the Caves of Pichingoto is a Quechua community dwelling in the base of the basalt "Qoriq'aqya" Mountain; the houses have facades that are made with sun-dried mud-bricks, but, which entrails are carved in the mountain. They are small caverns or caves inhabited even today by the beginning of the XXI century; although, their occupants are already educated or have some instruction level, they have a small Catholic Chapel and even electricity inside their houses. Some authors suggest that the name comes from "pichinco" (bird), and "q'oto" (goiter). After continue to Urubamba and back to Cusco transfer your hotel. Overnight in Cusco.

Day 6: Cusco South Circuit (Tipon, Piquillaqta and Andahuyalillas) (B)
At 09.00 am excursion of the south Cusco. A half kilometer away from the paved road is the small village of Tipón where an extraordinary colonial abode stands out. It is without any doubt, the most important countryside monument inherited from colonial times but nowadays is completely abandoned. The original Quechua name of the whole Park is lost, and today it has diverse groups, standing out the sector where some Inkan "royal inclosures" are found. That group is found in a slight and warm ravine at an altitude of 3500 mts. (11480 Ft.). Besides, the terracing found over here is very impressive, it contains 12 very fertile terraces that are still cultivated, and their retaining walls were built with well carved stones. Even more impressive is the irrigation system that is still serving agriculture and was made taking advantage of the water spring existing in the spot. It has carved stone channels, precisely calculated and sometimes with almost vertical falls that all together constitute a hydraulic engineering master work. Likewise, there are some fountains that must have ceremonial duties. Then continue to pre-Hispanic site of Pikillaqta is located over 3350 mts. (11000 Ft.) and belonged to a satellite city of the Wari Culture developed in the present-day Ayacucho department. The Wari Culture is a blend of cultural elements of the Warpa, Nazca and Tiawanako civilizations. It undertook the start of its territorial expansion and then the Wari invasion of the Qosqo valley toward the year 750 AD; being developed approximately until 1200 AD. Everything indicates that by the beginning of the Inkan development the Waris were defeated in this region, conquered and absorbed, and their city was reused for the Tawantinsuyo's interests. Today that pre-Inkan City contains approximately 700 buildings, 200 "kanchas" (apartments) and 504 "qolqas" (storehouses) and different buildings. After continue to Andahuyalillas on its vast Main Plaza adorned with "pisonay" (coral trees) and palm trees is its most valuable jewel: the Andahuaylillas colonial church. The church is considered to be the "Sistine Chapel" of the Americas, because of the quality of the artworks found inside it. This church must have been built over some important Inkan building, possibly a "Waka" (shrine), as bases of the church were made with carved andesites belonging to religious Quechua architecture.
Entering the church through its main gate, towards the left side is the baptistery; around its entrance is the writing "I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen"; what is interesting is that the writing is in five languages spoken at the time when the church was built: Latin, Spanish, Quechua, Pukina and Aymara (today Pukina is an extinct language).
