Markets and cemeteries

Cusco: Past and Present

This experience reflects what daily life is like in Cuzco today. The San Pedro market has something for everyone. Fresh, succulent fruit is on display among musical instruments and pre-fabricated packages to make offerings to Mother Earth. In the morning, we will tour this unique market to discover the local customs while enjoying a smorgasbord of cheeses and corn varieties. An authentic experience like no other. Later, we will take a trip to La Almudena Cemetery, where Christian beliefs intertwine with an Andean world view to give us a real feel for how current Andeans deal with the concept of death. Angels and crosses hover over impressive mausoleums of marble and rock in the midst of enormous murals that pay tribute to patron saints.
