The archeological complex of Pisac is immense. It sits on top of a hill overlooking the valley. The ruins are massive infact they are just second to Machu Picchu. It was built during the reign of Pachacutec, the emperor who built Machu Picchu and Choquequirao.
Pisac is also home to the weekend artisan market. It is an ideal place to buy souvenirs. Here the local farmers and craftsmen set small tents by the main square every weekend to sell their products.
It is the heart of the Sacred Valley of Incas. The village is snuggled in between the snow caped peaks. It boasts a beautiful countryside and great weather.
It was the most prominent site to Incas in the whole of Sacred Valley. The village is sandwiched between two massive Inca ruins. It is the best surviving example of Incas city planning. The village has been continuously inhabited from the 13th century. It takes you back in time. The ruins here were sacred to Incas. In 1537 during the battle of Ollantaytambo between Manco Inca II and the Spaniards this site transformed into a war zone.
The most photographed site in the Sacred Valley of Incas. Maras is home to the famous salt mines that nestles on a side of a hill. These geometric shaped salt puddles have been in use since Pre-Inca times and have been passed down in line of succession. They still continue to practise the traditional salt farming method. They let in the natural spring water and let it evaporate. Then they scrape out the crystals of salt from here.
Another important site in Incas history. Moray houses distinct farming terraces. It was more like an agricultural laboratory to Incas. These circular terraces have different levels. Each levels have a different temperature. There is a difference of 15 degrees celsius between the top and the bottom level. This helped the Incas to experiment the growth conditions of crops at different climatic zones.
It is a small village near Cusco city. Chinchero is home to Andean textiles. People here are popular for knitting woollen wears using Alpaca wool. There is a white washed church overlooking the village. This was once a summer palace of Tupac Yupanqui. Chinchero has the most fertile soil in the whole of Sacred Valley. During Pachacutec’s rule, he built many aqueducts and irrigation channels which are in use even today.
