Chinchero has a lovely church build on top of an Inca temple. The stonework on the site next to the church is amazing. One wonders how the with such perfection using massive stones. After all, they used gravity, not concrete, to hold their buildings together. What's even more amazing is the perfect cut in Imperial Inca rock buildings.

(under one hour by local bus)
