We are going to a village called Tarabuco at the Sunday morning. My friends say that the Sunday market of the village is famous and they really love shopping, but I am not interested in shopping. I think that it would be boring.
Tarabuco (officially San Pedro de Montalván de Tarabuco) is a small town of the province of Yamparáez in the department of Chuquisaca in the South American Andes. It is best known as the home of the Yampara culture.
Tarabuco is located at an altitude of 3,292 m, with a population of 2,977 inhabitants (2012 census).
Each Sunday, a colorful and vibrant open-air market attracts locals and tourists alike.
Turned to the right at this corner you will reach the main square of this village.
Many people wear traditional Yampara costumes, which not only preserve their identity but also advertise their location of origin within the area to others.
It was past 12 o’clock, we were looking for a restaurant and found it.
Pukara Wasi offers the best typical regional food. You are able to observe the process and the techniques of the weaving in traditional loom, Yampara and Jalq’a Textile Handicraft of high quality.
After lunch, we come back to the main square of Tarabuco.
When we arrived in the main square, the street stalls decreased considerably.
Adiós Tarabuco y gracias.
