Cusco and the Sacred Valley Sights

Awana Kancha

Updated 11/30/2012

Fodor's Review

Loosely translated as "palace of weaving," Awana Kancha provides an opportunity to see products made from South America's four camelids (alpaca, llama, vicuña, and guanaco) from start to finish: the animal, the shearing, the textile weaving and dyeing, and the finished products, which you can purchase in the showroom. It makes a great stop for the whole family, as kids can feed the camelids on-site.

Awana Kancha Review

This is a nice store, but beware! They promised us many things that never showed up and they have been completely non-responsive to us. They were supposed to send us a certificate of authenticity for a very expensive tapistry we purchased. They also promised us artist description and other documentation associated with artwork we purchased, and they never came through.
