Stop At: Saywite, Curahuasi, Abancay 03101 Peru
The Saywite archaeological site is located in the Curahuasi district, Abancay province, Apurímac department
Saywite is geographically very close to two important citadels: Machu Picchu and Choquequirao.
For the culture of the Incas, Saywite could have been a ceremonial center where water was worshiped, but it must also have been a "training" center where the Inca hydraulics learned the different engineering options in coastal and mountain conditions.
Duration: 3 hours
Stop At: Sitio Arqueológico de Killarumiyoc, 08635, Peru
The Moon has always had a privileged place in the Olympus of many cultures and a predominant role in myths, art and even in calendars. Most of the time it is associated with magic, knowledge, femininity, fertility and, therefore, with life. The Aguaruna explain, through their myths, the origin of the spots that they have, which are nothing more than the painting of the fruit of the huito on the face of the man Luna, Nantu, after committing incest and being caught red-handed.
Duration: 2 hours
Stop At: Tarawasi, Limatambo, Cusco 08641 Peru
The Tarawasi Archaeological Complex, also known by the name of Limatambo, is located in the Limatambo district, in the Anta province, within the department and region of Cusco; at an average height of 2,675 meters above sea level, on the left bank of the Limatambo river.
The name Tarawasi comes from two Quechua words, the first "Tara," referring to a bush and "wasi" to home. This would have been one of the many complexes ordered to be built by the Inca Pachacútec during his reign.
Tarawasi had the purpose of having been a Ceremonial Center that was located at the beginning of Chichaysuyo, about it we can also observe that its Main Temple is located on a Ushnu, a kind of pyramid-shaped altar ceremony that was used for more ceremonies important. It is also said that this site would have been built with the purpose of being a rest area on the route to Chinchaysuyo.
