Ingapirca is Ecuador’s major Inca archaeological site.  This fortress-temple in Cañar valley was built by Sun worshippers in the 15th century.  It is located approximately 50 miles northeast of Cuenca at an elevation of 10,500 feet above sea level.

We start our tour by visiting Sanctuary of Morning Dew.  This church has a very distinctive gothic architectural style blended into the mountain, dating back to the late 19th century.

Next, we will visit an indigenous family where who will show us how they weave Panama hats.  This is one of the emblematic crafts of Southern Ecuador and plays an important economic role for the area.

Our tour continues with a spectacular ride through the enchanting highlands, enjoying breathtaking views along the way.

When we arrive at Ingapirca, one of the most important Inca structures is waiting for us – an elliptical platform known as the “Sun’s Temple”.

From here, you will be able to see courtyards, terraces and various other ruins. In order to get a closer look at the local atmosphere, we will take a short hike to observe the Inca Face, a large stone carved mountain. We will stop for lunch at a local restaurant in the area before our return to Cuenca.
