It is decorated in the indigenous Baroque style with gold-plated pictures frames and truly magnificent paintings by the best artists of the Cusquenian Art School, depicting scenes from the life of San Antonio Abad.

The Monastery was originally built in 1595 on the site of the palace of Inca Amaru Qhala. In 1598, it was founded as the Seminary of San Antonio Abad by the sixth Bishop of Cuzco, Monsignor Antonio de la Raya, to train Catholic priests.

Pisac Market

Pisac is a great place to purchase top quality Andean knitwear at lower prices than visitors will find in major cities during their travels in Peru. Woven blankets, tapestries, and alpaca garments such as sweaters and mittens, colorful fabric and accessories are found in abundance at the Pisac market in addition to pottery, jewelry, and other handicrafts.

Pisac Inca Ruins

Pisac is a bustling colonial village at the base of a spectacular Inca fortress perched on a mountain spur. Its pull is universal and recent years have seen an influx of expats and new age followers in search of an Andean Shangri-la.  Located just 33km northeast of Cuzco by a paved road, it’s the most convenient starting point to the Sacred Valley.

Ollantaytambo

After lunch, we proceed onto Ollantaytambo an attractive little town located at the western end of the Sacred Valley. The town is located at the foot of some spectacular Inca ruins which protected the strategic entrance to the lower Urubamba Valley. The temple area is at the top of steep terracing which helped to provide excellent defenses. Stone used for these buildings was brought from a quarry high up on the opposite side of the Urubamba River – an incredible feat involving the efforts of thousands of workers. The complex was still under construction at the time of the conquest and was never completed.

The Nature Walk offers guests a glimpse of cloud forest flora: ferns, bromeliads and orchids and fauna -an interesting variety of birds; as well as an introduction to the Vilcanota river system, the Observatory, the tea garden and house.

Donations are appreciated.

Guided Tour of Machu Picchu (2 – 3 Hours)

The ‘Holy Grail’ for lovers of Inca monuments, the enigmatic lost city of Machu Picchu is the most famous archaeological site in all of South America and possibly the world.

The spectacular collection of temples, terraced hills and plazas was the mountain-top citadel of the Inca under Pachacutec and Tupac Yupanqui, until the coming of the Europeans with Pizarro.

It may have the most familiar name, but Machu Picchu has refused to reveal many of its mysteries, including the secrets of its construction, function, and demise. The overgrown ruins were discovered by US historian Hiram Bingham in 1911, and the quality of the stonework hints that it was an extremely important ceremonial site.

The remains are thought to date from around 1450, built at the height of the Inca Empire, and as they escaped being plundered by the Spanish they include semi-intact icons and shrines that were defaced or removed at other sites.

Entering the site, a set of steps leads to the ruined Temple of the Sun and a series of altars and niches.  Highlights include the remains of ceremonial baths, the Sacred Plaza with its tremendous view across the Urubamba River valley, a rare shrine to the sun, and a labyrinth of passageways and cells.

The Sun Gate (2 Hours)

Inti Punku the Sun Gate marks the entrance to Machu Picchu.

It is a one-hour uphill hike to the southeast of the Sanctuary, climbing more than 300 meters. The hike is on the original Inca trail and is paved with Inca stones. There is a spectacular view from the gate!

Additional Tours Available

 Apu Machu Picchu (4 to 5 Hours Roundtrip)

The hike to the summit of Apu Machu Picchu is 2 ½ hours and can be quite steep in places.

This is a breathtaking hike, lot of orchids along the way, birds in the bushy areas, and with every stop the view is gets better and better. The climb is 600 meters uphill, so a reasonable level of fitness is required.

*** Access to Apu Machu Picchu is controlled by special tickets which need to be purchased in advance by us. Access is 07:00 – 11:00.  Please ask to have these tickets included in your tour if desired***

Inka Bridge (Bridge 1 Hour Round Trip)

This hike is to the south west of Machu Picchu, a nice original trail that overlooks the Aobamba valley and the Hydro-electric plant.

This Inca Bridge is a part of a mountain trail that heads west from Machu Picchu. The trail is a stone path, part of which is cut into a cliff face.  A twenty-foot gap was left in this section of the carved cliff face, over a 1,900 feet drop that could be bridged with two tree trunks. When the tree trunks were removed then the trail became impassable to outsiders. The path is narrow and paved with original Inca stones.

Huayna Picchu (3 – 4 Hours)

Huayna Picchu is the mountain you see behind Machu Picchu. Towering above the north end of Machu Picchu this steep mountain is often seen in the backdrop to the classic photos of the ruins.

The mountain is steep, but stone steps are laid along most of the way and where the mountain is steeper you will find steel cables used as handrails. For fit people it is not a difficult climb.

Very Limited Access!

Only 400 people are allowed to hike Huayna Picchu each day.  You have to sign in at the entrance gate. The first 200 tickets are available for the 8:00am hike. The second 200 are available at 10:00am.

***We need to buy these special tickets in advance to be sure you will have space for this hike***

HEALTH AND SAFETY

Altitude Sickness or Soroche

Lake Titicaca is located 3,450 meters above sea level. Higher than 2,000 meters of altitude it is possible to suffer «Soroche» characterized by headache, dizziness and nausea. To avoid these symptoms, we suggest that you plan your trip and gradually adapt to the altitude visiting Arequipa or Cusco before Titilaka. On your first day at Titilaka follow these tips:

  • Avoid excessive exercise
  • Drink plenty of water (more than 3 liters per day)
  • Do not drink alcohol or coffee (or do so moderately)

At the hotel, we offer Coca teas that are ancient natural remedies to alleviate and prevent these symptoms. In addition, we have a full time nurse who will monitor your oxygen level throughout your stay and administer additional oxygen if needed. Nearby hospitals and additional medical assistance is available in 50 minutes in the city of Puno.

WATER QUALITY

Although Peru has made vast improvements concerning water quality, it is still not safe to drink the tap water. We process and filter the lake water for the hotel use, however we do not recommend drinking it. Please use bottled water which is available at the bar, in your room and at all excursions and transfers. If you want to help us reduce pollution in the area, we encourage you to bring your reusable water bottle.

SUNBURN

If you are travelling to the highlands of Peru, sunburn is of major concern because of the altitude and high level of radiation. Be sure to wear plenty of sun block, preferably over 45 SPF, and a hat at all times.

DEHYDRATION

Because of the highlands’ dry climate, dehydration and dryness may become a problem. Be sure to drink plenty of liquids and to apply lip balm and moisturizer continuously; both are found in your room.

WHEN TAKING PICTURES

  • We strongly recommend these guidelines while taking pictures in Peru:
  • People in traditional dress hanging around heavily touristic areas expect you to pay them if you take their photo.
  • Don’t treat people as part of the landscape. They may not want their picture taken.
  • In rural areas, ask for permission before taking pictures through doors or windows into private homes.

PACKING LIST

Weather in Puno changes very rapidly; it is advisable to wear light clothing during the day when it is sunny (shirts / T- shirts, short sleeve shirts, shorts) and warm winter clothes for the dusk outings (sweater, jacket, fleece, pants long). We also recommend using special walking shoes or hiking boots, a cap or hats, sunglasses and sunscreen when outside the hotel.

The hotel is heated and casual, so feel free to use conformable clothing indoors. If you need to wash something, Titilaka offers a 24-hour room and laundry service. Every bathroom is equipped with hair dryers.
