Not quite in the Sacred Valley, but between Urubamba and Cusco lies a small and quaint town as the highest point. This is the town of Chinchero. It is quaint, and does have some smaller archeological ruins further back in the town. The town does also boast a textile market which happens on the weekends but in the mornings - it will be over by 2 pm, with just the few people trying to sell the last of the pile stuff - so be sure to get there early!
Hello! My name is Tahira Karim. I was born and raised on the Canadian prairies have been leaving and returning ever since. I absolutely love to travel. I am an observer of life and culture, and I have a passion for history and food. I am a visual artist who specializes in painting and drawing. And this blog is a jumble of my writing and thoughts on travel, culture, and food, with a bunch of personal stories thrown into the mix. Enjoy!
