Pachamanca Experience at Sol y Luna




Pachamanca is one of the many experiences at Sol y Luna! For the Incas, this rustic yet highly symbolic dining ritual named for the Quechua words pacha “earth” and manka “pot” represented a celebration of the cycle of life. Digging an earthen oven and cooking food underground pays homage to Pachamama, the Incan fertility goddess.


Surrounded by the glorious Andes Mountains and Sol y Luna’s thriving gardens, they recreate this quintessentially Andean banquet, at lunch or dinner, for up to 8 people. Like the Incan ancestors, they return our food -- lamb, alpaca, pork, chicken and guinea pig along with sweet potatoes, potatoes, green beans, plantains, stuffed peppers, tamales and choclo white corn of the Sacred Valley -- to Mother Earth’s belly before eating it as sign of respect.





A beautiful Relais & Chateaux resort in the heart of Peru’s Sacred Valley, Sol y Luna is set in lush gardens, with two excellent restaurants, a large spa, pool and its own stables! Set amid exuberant tropical gardens – with hummingbirds and butterflies dancing about the flora and fauna, this luxury resort features architecturally stunning stone-built, adobe-clad casitas tasteful decorated in upscale Andean art and craft pieces.
