We will meet in "Ayllu" coffee shop, in Almagro street, together with Valerie Velasco (Visual Artist, Designer and Photographer) we will review some basic concepts of photography. Then, through a segment of the old Qhapac Ñan or Camino Real de los Incas, we will arrive at the market known today as Mercado Central de San Pedro. At the colony, it was a space where bartering was carried out among local merchants and those of the former Contisuyo and Collasuyo on the Ausangate route. Whit a republican style, the market will impact your senses and will be an incredible experience. The vibrant colors will keep you with your eyes open, the smells of local cuisine will catch you and the sound of the vendors and the bustle of the place will complete the perfect image of an authentic local experience. We will tour and photograph the spaces, seeing unique products, visit the sections of meats, fruits, medicinal herbs, vegetables, breads, flowers, crafts and gastronomy, as well as a special section for the sale of products and supplies for Andean ceremonies and rites. Finally, if you wish, we can taste one of its famous juices and extracts of Peruvian fruits in its juice section.
