Parque Arqueologico De Raqchi, San Pedro

Must see · Ruin · Landmark
Stop off at Parque Arqueologico De Raqchi, a remote village home to some of the most interesting Inca ruins in . The ruins were once part of one of the holiest sites in the Inca empire, a temple that was largely destroyed by the Spanish. Still, the twenty-two stone block columns support the best-preserved and largest Inca roof in the world. Elsewhere around the village, find stalls selling ceramics made in the town: a nice bit of symmetry, given the town's most famous historical site.
