Early in the morning, we will depart for Saraguro. it´s located between Cuenca and Loja where you will discover one of the most important indigenous centers of South America. The native Saraguros still maintain their Inca roots through the Quichua language and traditional dress code, local constructions and gastronomy
A Saraguro guide will meet us to share with us an interesting experience. Today we will have the opportunity to be part of a ceremony of “Spiritual purification” known as a “limpia” with the Yakchas (similar to shamans), which consists of bad energies purification through medicinal plants, smoke, and fire. You will be invited to participate in spiritual rituals and pay tribute to Pachamama (Mother Earth) at these sacred sites.
After the ritual, we will visit a textile workshop where we will have a demonstration of the different types of looms. We will have lunch in a local restaurant and return to Cuenca.
