The town of Matinga is located in the Taray district, in the Colca province of the Department of Cusco. It is 40 minutes away from Cusco, via the road to Pisaq through the Sacred Valley. Matinga is characterized by its favorable climate and impressive landscape, as it is nestled in between the mountains of the Vilcanota range. The members of the community enjoy taking visitors to the town’s two viewpoints, from one you can see the entire city of Cusco and from the other the Sacred Valley. You can also visit the Center of Interpretation of Andean Cultivation, an ethnographic museum established by the community members where you can learn more about the tubers (varieties of potatoes, olluco, mashwa, etc.) and cereals (quinua, kiwicha, cañihua) grown in the region.
If you would like to visit this community, we can organize different tours to discover:
