Souvenir shops along street at Chinchero, Peru

Сhinchero, Peru- June 14, 2016: Chinchero is a small Andean Indian village located high up on the windswept plains of Anta at 3762m about 30km from Cusco. The village may have been an important town in Inca times. The most striking remnant of this period is the massive stone wall in the main plaza which has ten trapezoidal niches. The construction of the wall and many other ruins and agricultural terraces (which are still in use) are attributed to Inca Tupac Yupanqui. In the main plaza an adobe colonial church, dating from the early seventeenth century, has been built upon the foundations of an Inca temple or palace.
