What to see?

Pisac:

The town of Pisac is located 33 kilometers from the city of Cusco and is presented as the door to the Sacred Valley. It is world famous for its artisan market and its impressive archaeological remains, located on a mountain above the town. This town was a kind of capital of the region in the time of the Incas, very important for its excellent location and fertile land. The Inca and colonial constructions that are exhibited in its territory, are admirable for their great invoice and for the platforms that surround the mountains and polished stone structures, assembled to perfection. On the other hand, the people of Pisac has become the spiritual center of the Sacred Valley, in it you can have all kinds of experiences and spiritual retreats, as well as meet people from all over the world interested in this.

 

Urubamba:

Urubamba is one of the most important cities of the valley at present, it is a city that was born during the colony and is considered the world capital of corn. This is possible because it is watered by numerous rivers that are born in the peaks of the glacier mountains; all this territory was very appreciated by the Incas due to the fertility of their lands and the great qualities for cultivation. It is one of the best places to relax in the valley, you will see many foreigners, but beware, they are not tourists, they are people who left their countries and decided to stay and live in this cozy town.

 

Ollantaytambo:

Ollantaytambo, also known as Ollanta, is located 97 km northwest of the city of Cusco; approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes by car. It was during the time of the Incas a fortified city, with temples, urban, agricultural sectors and walls of defense. It is known that the Inca city of Ollantaytambo served as an administrative control post. After the Spanish invasion, it became one of the favorite places of the viceroys. It is considered one of the most important archaeological sites in Peru and South America; In addition, many people consider that after Machu Picchu, the town and ruins of Ollantaytambo contain the most impressive Inca stone work in Peru; however, it is not the only amazing thing about this place. Only a few years ago, global positioning systems allowed us to discover that Ollantaytambo is aligned with other ancient constructions throughout the world; the pyramids of Giza, the islands of Pascua, the Nazca lines, are just some of them; In addition, the most important archaeological remains from all over the world are aligned around this line. We recommend you visit the Inca city of Ollantaytambo, otherwise you will be missing something very big.

How is the valley climate?

The Sacred Valley of the Incas is located at 2,800 masl, 600 meters below Cusco, and enjoys one of the best climates of this region, temperatures during the day vary between 19 ° and 24 ° C. This privileged climate made the Incas take it as their main center of production, experimentation and agricultural research. Nowadays, travelers use the valley to acclimatize, before starting their tours through Cusco and Machu Picchu, and without doubt one of the best ways to avoid altitude sickness.
