Andahuaylas, in Apurimac, is a place that about 17,000 people call home.
Andahuaylas is situated 65 miles (105 kilometers) southwest of Cusco - Machu Picchu and 270 miles (435 kilometers) southeast of Lima, the national capital.
One of the best heritage sites in Andahuaylas is the Sondor Archaeological Site. Atmospheric and educational, it is well worth a trip. Enquire about a guided tour, get photographs and learn about the events that shaped local history.
Andahuaylas boasts some fine civic gathering spaces; Plaza de Talavera is one of the most popular. Treat yourself to a local snack, meet the locals, and you’ll soon see why this square is so loved by Andahuaylas residents.
Andahuaylas’s major sights sometimes overshadow the city’s less visited, but equally fascinating sights such as the Catedral de San Pedro.
