There is a calm air that surrounds Chinchero Ruins. The small market Church and grassy plain that makes up much of the town lie amidst a circle of tall mountains, including the snowy peak of Salkantay. It feels secure and a bit mystical. There are no large hotels or fancy restaurants. It has retained its simple Andean character better than other towns on the tourist circuit and is my favorite of the tiny valley ruins. At 3,762/12,500 feet, it sits a bit higher than the rest of the valley, so it would be a good idea to acclimate yourself before coming here.
Sightseeing Chinchero Ruins
You walk up the hundreds of stone steps from the parking lot until they become too chaotic to climb. Turn left onto another stone path, past some shops and houses, and walk through the stone archway. There you will find the main square. The plaza has several terraces, most of which display Inca masonry skills. One wall, in particular, has ten trapezoidal niches; if you continue walking to the edge of the plain, several hiking trails branch off in different directions.
To the right is the small but attractive 17th-century colonial adobe church constructed on top of an Incan
palace of Tupac Yupanqui. What recently restored it, and you can walk inside if you are quiet. A few frescoes worth checking out adorn the walls, and ceilinChurch Church is open during the same hours as the site. A small archeology museum opposiChurch Church holds some elemental Inca relics. The view here is breathtaking. The Incas considered Chinchero the birthplace of the rainbow.
Chinchero Sunday Market
The Sunday Market begins at around 8 am on the main square. It is much less flashy and more traditional than the Pisac market. The selection is much smaller, but the prices are better. Here, the villagers and vendors seem to dress in traditional clothes because that is what they wear. It doesn’t feel like they are doing so to sell you something or get their picture taken. Some locals lay out a blanket of woven items such as hats, gloves, scarves, and shawls on any day of the week.
