Chinchero

This village is located 28 km from Cusco on the way to Urubamba. In where you will find the remains of the royal hacienda of Tupac Inca Yupanqui, and the beautiful colonial temple built over the remains of an important Inca temple. One of the main attraction is its Sunday market, originally dedicated to the barter of products between the people from the valleys and the highlands. Nowadays, the market is a true spectacle of color and movement that causes the tourist fascination with its offer of crafts and elaborated textile garments made with the purest pre-Columbian style.

Salt mines of Maras

The salt mines of Maras is composed of more than 3,000 small ponds constructed on the mountain slope in terraces and are exploited since ancient times .Every year during the dry season the local people start to work collecting the salty water that emerge from mountain bowels like a water source, and is directed by tiny canals to fill the ponds. The salty water contained in the ponds are gradually evaporated by the sun heat and after the salt is collected to be commercialized in the local and international market. Its consumption is highly recommended by its content of minerals suitable for human organism. and it is known as the pink salt of Maras.

Moray

It is located 67 kilometers from the city of Cusco. It is a formidable archaeological complex with concentric circular terraces built in a natural depression, taking the form of a gigantic amphitheater. These terraces formed a large agricultural laboratory, in which the ancient Peruvians experienced and got improvements in agricultural production, also has Andean religious importance that inspires a great mysticism. Now is used also as a center of the Ritual offerings to the Mother Earth (Pachamama).

Ollantaytambo

It is located 60 km northwest of the city of Cusco and with a height of 2.850 meters above sea level, this impressive Inca construction was erected in the fifteenth century during the reign of the Inca Pachacutec and shows an amazing architecture in its buildings ,such as the temple of the sun, built with giant stone blocks perfectly joined crowning the mountain, and in the lower part is possible to see the remains of the ancient Inca citadel, composed by royal buildings , cobbled streets crossed by canals where the water still runs as in ancient times.

His original name was Tambo, which means place of rest and it was a main gateway toward the Antisuyo region where is the Citadel of Machu Picchu.

Machu Picchu

Nestled in the eastern side of the Andes that descend to the Amazon jungle to 2400 meters of height. This imposing Inca citadel built in the XV century was a resting place for the Inca ruler Pachacutec, and was hidden for almost four centuries in the dense vegetation of the jungle, until its scientific discovery by the American professor Hiram Bingham in the year of 1911. From that time attracted the interest of many scientists and visitors from all over the world due to its history and its beauty.

This enigmatic citadel built on cliffs and surrounded by the majestic river Urubamba is built completely of stone with temples finely worked, spacious squares, water fountains, agricultural terraces and royal houses that once housed Inca monarchs.
