Andahuaylillas is 32 km (20 miles) southeast from Cuzco in the Cuzco valley and is sadly overlooked by most of the visitors to the area simply because of time constraints.
|The village is quiet and quaint.
The centerpiece is the 17th century church with an exquisite interior of frescoes, a guilded main alter and a splendid carved door.
This is the highlight of the excursion and the interior is well worth the visit.
A visit to Andahuaylillas is generally combined with a stop at Piquillacta, a large site with Huari (pre-Inca) adobe wall, the wall of Rumicola and the monkey temple.
Then continue uphill to Tipon ruins, a small cluster of terraces and walls with fountain and baths.
