  • Awanakancha: Alpaca, Art & Andes You can’t travel to Peru without taking time to see animals native to the Andes. And, unless you plan on heading deep into the countryside, the very best (and easiest place) to see them is at Awanakancha, a small camelid farm dedicated to the animals and intricate textiles produced from their wool. Find out why you should take some time to visit! What to see On arrival at the farm, you will have the opportunity to meet the resident animals; alpaca, llama and Vicuña. Separated by species and sex in large pens, the friendly animals are keen to meet visitors in the hope of receiving a tasty grassy snack. After getting to know the animals, you can take some time to visit some of the small onsite exhibits, where you can understand how the animals wool is refined and naturally dyed, before finally being expertly woven into fabrics, tapestry’s, clothing or a variety of other products. Women from native communities offer live examples of traditional (and intricate) weaving techniques, using basic tools and wooden looms. Of-course as you would expect there is also an onsite shop selling the products that have been made at the farm. However, unlike most other markets and shops in Cusco and the Sacred Valley, the items up for sale are unique, very different from the standard things you find elsewhere and often very beautiful. If you are not tempted to buy anything, do take some time to wonder around the shop, as some of the items for sale are quite impressive. Look out for the large hand woven telas (weavings) that cost upwards of US$ 7,000 ea, and are crafted by one artist taking 6-7 months to complete. There are no onsite guides to show you around, as most people arrive at the farm as part of a pre-arranged guided tour of the Sacred Valley. However, do take some time to talk with the workers and animal keepers at the farm, as their insight is just as good if not more rewarding than listening to a guide. Where is it? Awanakancha is located about two-thirds of the way to the Sacred Valley on the Cusco to Pisac road. From Cusco it takes about 30-40 minutes to get there, and from Pisac about 20 minutes. The compound of the farm is surrounded by a long brown adobe (mud) wall, which although would seem very obvious at the outset, can easily be missed if you are not familiar with the area. If you are on a bus, ask to be dropped off at Km. 23 on the Cusco – Pisac road. The official address is Km. 23 Pista Cusco- Pisac. (theonlyperuguide.)

  • Eu particularmente achei o lugar bem divertido! Passei um bom tempo acariciando as lhamas e alpacas (as vicunhas são mais tímidas). Logo no início você saberá a diferença entre os animais presentes no santuários e poderá observar tecelãs locais fazendo seus trabalhos. Caso queira comprar alguma peça no final, existe uma loja linda (e cara). A entrada é gratuita e vale muito a pena, só não esqueça de tomar cuidado para não ser cuspido por uma lhama.
