Andahuaylillas

Andahuaylillas

 

 

We pulled off the main road and wiggled through some tiny streets until we reached the town square of Andahuaylillas.

The Andahuaylillas District covering eighty four square kilometers, is one of the twelve districts in the Quispicanchi Province in Peru. Created on the 2nd of January 1857, its capital is the town of Andahuaylillas. There are twenty seven populated centres with a total of five thousand four hundred inhabitants (2005 Census). The elevation is ten thousand, two hundred and forty three feet above sea level.

 

 

 

In the far right corner of the square is San Pedro Apostol Church (undergoing restoration - own blog) - our first tour, simply exquisite for the gold alone

 

 

 

The Town Square Fountain and our bus waiting quietly

 

 

Yet another impromptu market that we are now so used to. Next visit was to the tiny museum (own blog)

 

    

 

We really liked the art on sale here

 

 

 

Back on the bus and wiggling back out to the main road, we touched a few cables en route

 

 

ALL IN ALL A VERY INTERESTING LITTLE TOWN
