Travelers in Cusco will be able to visit an amazing replica of chocolate of the famous Inca citadel Machu Picchu, in the lobby of the Marriot Hotel in the Calle Ruinas – just two blocks from the Plaza de Armas.

A team of eight assistents guided by the Peruvian chef cooks Rely Alencastre and Norberto Espinoza, have been working 45 days to complete this spectacular work, made of 210 kilos of pure cocoa pasta, in honor to the famous ruins.

The replica includes the mountain Huayna Picchu, the Inti Huatana (solor clock) and there are even llamas to be admired.

Chef Rely Alencastre highlighted the fact that it’s the first time a cocoa replica of Macchu Picchu is made entirely out of cocoa.

"This exalts the Peruvian culture and our famous Machu Picchu. The replica also serves as a tribute to my children, to the local people of Cusco and finally to everyone going to see it," he told Andina news agency.
