Continuing with our trip we will head to the district of Ollantaytambo, located approximately 60 km northwest of the city of Cusco, where the archaeological site of the same name is located. We will finish with Chinchero, where the Ayamarcas tribe lived, who defended their territory and gave strong resistance before accepting their incorporation into the Inca empire; Chinchero was the place chosen by the Inca Tupac Yupanqui to establish his residence, where he built beautiful palaces for his personal use. In 1536, in the midst of the Spanish invasion, Manco Inca rebelled by setting fire to that city so that the invaders would not renew their provisions and would stop pursuing them while fleeing into the jungle.
