What will you do?

You are about to learn about the history of one of the most fascinating villages of the Sacred Valley of the Incas: Lamay. We will visit the temple of Santiago Apostle, built with adobe and stone in the seventeenth century and declared Cultural Heritage of Peru in 1972. In it you will see works of art of the baroque-mestizo style, learn the language of the temple bells and visit the mezzanine of the choir to have a complete view of the place. Then we will visit a guinea pig farm, a traditional activity turned into a business opportunity that benefits many families in the community. Now that we are a little thirsty, we will visit a traditional chichería and eat a local snack. There we will learn about the fermentation process of chicha de jora, a drink of the Incas with deep mystical significance in the offerings to the earth that persist to this day. If we can, we will visit the Lamay oven, a meeting place for the people of the community. There we will talk with the owners, who will tell us what daily life is like in this wonderful place.
