chapter house. In 1551 the National University of San Marcos was founded in the convent, the first university
that the Spanish crown created in America.

Later we will go to the Larco Museum, an 18th century viceregal mansion that houses more than 3,000
years of pre-Columbian Peruvian history. It currently has the finest collection of gold and silver jewelry and
worship items. It also has a famous collection of erotic huacos that demonstrate aspects of the sexuality
of the pre-Columbian settler.

of pre-Columbian Peru and their importance in the lives of ancient Peruvians.

Full day visit to the Sacred Valley: Seminario ceramic workshop and

Today we will visit the workshop of the famous potter Pablo Seminario, where we will learn techniques
and designs from ancient Peruvian cultures. Pablo Seminario represents a new expression of art, giving
continuity to that cultural heritage, he concentrates on making large format works, “big plates” as he calls
them. In his personal workshop, he has his own space for creation, where the images that emerge are the
result of patient work to continue with pre-Columbian ceramics, an ambitious task, which he started more
than 20 years ago and continues to develop together with his wife Marilú.
We will be part of the ceramic experience where we will work on a clay plate with pre-Columbian
techniques focused on painting, result of Pablo Seminario’s research.
Note: the plates that are made will be dried in the sun and burned in the oven. They will be ready in 2 or 3
days and will be delivered in Cusco, prior coordination with the guide.
We will enjoy a delicious lunch to regain strength and then, we will appreciate a show of Peruvian Paso
Horses, known throughout the world for their smooth movements and gallop of unusual spirit. No other
horse combines strength, intelligence, and beauty as perfectly as the Peruvian Paso Horse.
We will continue to Ollantaytambo, one of the last living towns of the Inca culture, which was jealously
guarded by a colossal fortress. We will discover the great archaeological complex of what was a tambo
or city of rest and lodging for the royal retinues that traveled long distances. Its architectural remains still
preserve walls and towers that were used to protect it from possible invasions.

Machu Picchu.
