SAN PEDRO DE VILCABAMBA

This little village located only 3 km from Vilcabamba still keeps its colonial buildings.

The church in the center was built in "tapia" (rammed earth) and wood and is surrounded by colorful big houses with ample corridors, big patios and beautiful gardens.

At 1800 m. of altitude, temperature ranges from 10 to 24 degrees centigrade depending on the season.

Winter time, from December to June, is kind of warm while its summer, July to November is colder;

however, no extreme temperatures have been registered here.
