Sacred Valley tour Moray

In the morning, we pick you up from your hotel to take you to the Sacred Valley of the Incas.

Our first stop will be Pisac, here you can walk through the traditional market, a sea of wooden posts placed at random and very close together. Most of it, is located in the Main Square of Pisac, but extends to the small streets in the vicinity. We will also visit the archaeological site of Pisac, which is located on the slopes of a mountain. Here the guide will explain everything about this site and will answer any questions you may have.

Then, our next destination is Ollantaytambo, where each stone worked is an independent work of art in relation to the others, with different sides, angles and volumes. The ancient Peruvians, oblivious to our ease and pragmatism, had another concept of time and art. Ollantaytambo is also known, for an Inca plot drama entitled "Ollantay", whose protagonist was commander Ollanta, which takes place in this town.

Then, we will make a stop to rest in the picturesque town of Urubamba, and then continue our journey to Moray, a gigantic agricultural laboratory. Nearby we will visit the Maras salt mines, where we will appreciate the salt extraction process.

Finally, we continue towards the town of Chinchero, to admire the beautiful Temple, a structure that mixes Inca and Hispanic architectural tendencies. We arrived in Cusco at 7 pm approx.
