Discover Oropesa, a locality of Cusco known as the National Capital of Bread.

Next, we visit the workshop of the famous artist from Cusco Carlos Olivera, who shares the creation of his works that express his worldview through the use and interpretation of the subject. We will continue to the Church of Andahuaylillas, sometimes called the “Capilla Sixtina” or "Sistine Chapel" of America, the exterior of the church looks rather humble, it is the interior, that makes this one of the most valuable jewels of the colonial art in Peru.

This technique was brought during the conquest and gradually incorporated into popular expression, using colors and designs typical of the andes.
