A place of pilgrimage along a well traveled route
Review of Sanctuary of Lo Vásquez by catsholiday

Advantages: Pretty church with interesting story
Disadvantages: Not a lot there besides the small church

Sanctuary of Lo Vásquez  This rather pretty little Catholic church would normally not even be given a second glance as you drive past on the road from Santiago to Valparaiso. Luckily our guide stopped by the side of the road and told us how important thi ... Read review

Not Just Another Burial Site
Review of Sillustani, Puno by hiker

Advantages: Another take on Peru's long history
Disadvantages: Facilities at the site are extremely limited.

Sillustani was supposed to be a tail-end visit, a leg-stretch at the end of a long day on the road. However, with the unrest in the city and a guide who wanted to get in, hand us over and get out as quickly as possible, it was deferred. This might well ... Read review
