The religious nucleus of Písac

This archaeological site, considered one of the most important in Cuzco, lies near the town of Písac, of colonial origin, and which hosts a Sunday fair that draws thousands of visitors and villagers from remote highland villages, clad in colorful traditional dress. Holidays feature the procession of the varayocs or town mayors, who at around 9:30 am head to church to attend the traditional Mass held in Quechua, the Inca language.
