Nunu’s location is ideal for travelers of all kinds, whether you are in search of unforgettable adventures, looking to learn about the fascinating history of the Incas, or simply relax while surrounded by the peace and quiet of nature. This is a magical place, perfect for experiencing the mysticism of the Sacred Valley of the Incas -Cusco.

LAMAY

Situated on the right bank of the Vilcanota River (also known as the Urubamba), this area was originally inhabited by the Incas. According to legend, it was here where the best maize in all of the Andean territories grew. Later on, in 1536, the Spaniards founded Lamay. Nowadays, this tiny, attractive town still conserves its original touch.

Thanks to its excellent location (2,950 meters above sea level, and just 45 minutes from Cusco), it is an ideal place for travelers to acclimatize to the altitude.

Sites of interest in Lamay include:

The Viceroyal Church of Saint James the Apostle (1572):

A true emblem of the town of Lamay, this church, located in the main square, dates back to Colonial times.

Feast of Saint Rose of Lamay:

Guests planning to travel between August 30 and September 2 are strongly advised to make a stop in this town. The Feast of Saint Rose of Lamay, the year’s most important, is a celebration that pays tribute to the town’s patron saint. For four days, the town is filled with color and magic. The impressive dance troupes radiate an infectious energy, and the whole town is consumed by celebration, welcoming visitors with nonstop music and merriment until everyone drops from exhaustion.

Ruins of Huchuy Qosqo:

Just a 2- to 3-hour walk from the hotel, the name of this Incan archaeological complex means “Little Cusco,” due to the fact that the architectural layout of the structures here recalls that of Cusco. Built from stone and adobe assembled with exquisite attention to detail and a broad knowledge of architecture, its walls continue to withstand the inclement weather and the passage of time.

Main Local Attractions

From the hotel, guests can visit all of the Sacred Valley’s major attractions, such as:

  • City of Cusco: 45 mins. away
  • Pisac: 15 mins. away
  • Urubamba: 30 mins. away
  • Ollantaytambo: 50 mins. away

Moray

The circular terraces of Moray were built by the Incas, reaching depths of up to 150 meters. They are thought to have been used by the Incas as a kind of crop laboratory.

Ollantaytambo

This town’s biggest attraction is the archaeological complex, the most impressive in the Valley. However, the town itself is also exceptionally beautiful. Its layout remains just as it was designed during Incan times, with its cobblestoned streets lined with narrow water canals. The train to Machu Picchu departs from the station here.

Chinchero

This town, of Incan origin, is primarily known for the alluring textiles produced by its residents, who continue to use age-old techniques. Visitors can also check out the local ruins or stop by the church.
