Submitted by on April 4, 2011 – 12:00 amNo Comment

Potatoes originated in the South American Andes Mountains more than 8000 years ago, so where else in the world would you go to experience a “Potato Park”?

Both a culinary and a cultural experience, Parque de la Papa, located near Cuzco, is a 22,000-acre potato preserve with more than 1300 varieties.

Visitors can spend the day learning about the various kinds of potatoes,and the role these crops play in the lives of the local people and their culture. Included on the tour are Kinsaqocha Lake, fields of native potatoes, and workshops featuring handicrafts and medicinal plants.

End a visit with dinner at the park’s Papamanka Restaurant and sample a variety of potato dishes while taking in spectacular views of the park.

Potato Park is three kilometers from the archeological site of Pisaq and 40 kilometers from Cusco, mostly over paved roads. It is about an hour’s drive from Cusco, Road Trips Foodies, and a few minutes from the Sacred Valley of the Incas (the gateway to Machu Picchu).
