This will be an excursion you will never forget! we will visit the archaeological site of Raqchi located in the province of Canchis district of San Pedro, in this place it is said ceramic remains of pre-Inca cultures were found. This would show that Raqchi was a sacred site for the cultures that preceded the Incas. It is believed that Raqchi was built during the governments of the Huiracocha, Pachacútec and Túpac Yupanqui Incas during most of the fifteenth century; After visiting Raqchi we will go to our second point the Rainbow Mountain or also called Vinicunca (Winicunca).
