Chinchero #1

Chinchero - an archaeological site north east of Cusco. The site is being restored, if you look closely you can see some nice straight walls where others are in disrepair. A church was built at the top of the site using stones from the Inca housing. Today the town has grown down from the church, the older part near the church and the new housing off to the right of the photo.
