Accompanied by a specialized guide, we will learn about the solar sun, the astronomy of the ancestors and The Incas. We will visit the Fábrica de Bizcochos (Local Bread Factory) where we will learn how to prepare it and will taste this typical bread of the province.
Later on the route, we will stop at Lake San Pablo panoramic viewing point, where we will be able to take some pictures. After arriving to Otavalo, we will do some shopping in Plaza de los Ponchos (Poncho’s Square) where we will find various handcrafts and typical fabrics hand-made by the indigenous people.
