What you'll do

We will meet at the “Ayllu” Coffee Shop on Almagro Street (Historical Center), one of the most historic places in the city; together with Valerie Velasco who is also a Visual Artist and Designer, we give a brief review of how our cameras and/or smartphones work, after enjoying coffee we will start the tour.

Through a segment of the old "Qhapac Ñan" or Royal Road of the Incas we will arrive at the Central Market of San Pedro. In the colony, it was a space where barters were made between local merchants and those of the former Contisuyo and Collasuyo on the Ausangate route. With republican style, the market will impact your senses and will be an incredible experience. The vibrant colors will keep you with your open eyes, the smells of the local cuisine will catch you, the sound and the bustle of the place will complete the perfect image of an authentic local experience. We visit and take photos of the space, we will visit the sections of meats, fruits, medicinal herbs, vegetables, breads, flowers, handicrafts and gastronomy, as well as a special section for sale products and supplies for Andean ceremonies and rites.

At the end of the experience, we will stop at one of our favorite places to review and discuss the series of photos we took in our tour, we will have a drink together.
