Discover Peruvian culture on a half-day tour from Cusco to the Awana Kancha textile center. Begin with a visit to Cusco's Temple of the Sun as well as the impressive Cathedral. Then take a look into the culture and craftsmanship of weaving at Awana Kancha, which translates directly to ‘Palace of Weaving.’ After seeing how the furs from alpacas, llamas, vicuñas and guanacos are made into textiles, conclude with drop-off back at your hotel.

After pickup from your downtown Cusco hotel, visit the Coricancha, also known as the 'Temple of the Sun,' built under the orders of Inca Pachacútec (1438-1471) and used as a base for the construction of the Santo Domingo Convent upon the arrival of the Spaniards. Learn from your guide how the Sun (Inti, in Quechua) was worshiped during the Inca Empire, and how the temple's walls were fully covered with gold sheets and the courtyards were planted with golden corn and life-size llamas.

Hear how the Ecclesiastical Chapter ordered the extraction and transportation of thousands of stones from the Sacsayhuamán fortress for the Cathedral's construction, which took nearly a century to complete.
