DESCRIPTION OF THE PLACES TO VISIT

Pisac

Pisac is the gateway to the famous Sacred Valley where the incas erected on the mountain a magnificent Citadel consists of agricultural terraces, walls, warehouses, buildings and temples joined by an inca trail neatly built on cliffs and tunnels accompanied by spectacular views of the beautiful Urubamba valley. This Citadel was erected in the 15th century by order of the ninth inca King Pachacutec and should fulfill an important role in the Inca era, due to its strategic location and the quality of its architecture in their temples.

In colonial times the Citadel was abandoned and its inhabitants were forced to live in the new colonial villages known as Reductions created in the year 1572 by the Spanish as part of its policy regime of creating small villages agglomerated around a Christian Church and a central square. Currently in Pisac square every Sunday there is a traditional fair where the indigenous communities of the Sacred Valley practice the barter of their products.

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.

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.
