Chinchero

Chinchero is a Quechua village at 12,400 ft in the Central Andes region of Peru. This adobe colonial church dates back to the early 17th Century and was built upon the foundation of an Inca temple or palace. Some of the best weavers are in this region. We were fortunate to sit with two Quechuan ladies and learn how their magnificent tapestries are made from start to finish.
