About
We are an Cultural interpretation center about how the Andean people understand the skies. The explanation in two rooms give us a great perspective, in dome we learn about southern sky and finally, if weather allows, we enjoy some stargazing!

I enjoy astronomy. I would only recommend this visit if you are into this. It's mostly educational. Also, go during the dry season when it isn't cloudy. If it's cloudy there won't be much to see in the skies.

Do not expect super professional astrophysics here, but this group gave us an enjoyable tour and introduction to how the Peruvian people interpret the stars and space. We enjoyed getting to see the Southern cross, and they set up telescopes so we could see various...More

This ‘tour’ is way to overprized in my opinion. You will be told about how the Inka farmers used the stars for their agriculture, which is pretty nice to know. Then will be taken to a ‘dome’ to get some more information about formations of...More

some interesting facts but presented more for children than adults and a bit amateur. The dome is small, which wouldn’t matter but I don’t think it’s smooth, which does matter. The projection is incredibly blurred and the stars lack any detail so u don’t really...More

This was a great trip for the early evening. It is a family run business and it’s clear to as the hard work that put into the planetarium. The talks where really interesting and engaging about both stars in general and the Incas. Unfortunately it...More
