Pinchollo Cultural House Project
The community of Pinchollo is located in the Canon de Colca valley in the Arequipa Region. Due to its location, the community has been unable to take advantage of the many tourists passing through on the way to the world-famous canyon, the third largest attraction in Peru.
By building a cultural house as a tourist attraction, we’re aiming to make this area more attractive to visitors thereby providing a sustainable income for those who live here. The structure will act as a museum of local culture and dress that will be populated by the community with the help of the tourist board. Locals will also sell handicrafts outside.
We are working with the local government in the hope that they will support this project by including the cultural house on every ticket issued to visitors arriving at the canyon.
