In the Andes of Peru, hidden between the citadel of Machu Picchu and the city of Cusco, is the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Originally formed by the Urubamba River, the valley was once the fertile and spiritual base of the Inca Empire.
After picking you up from your hotel, we will head towards the city of Pisac. Pisac is the first archaeological complex that we will visit on our way to the majestic Sacred Valley of the Incas. This Inca city is located approximately 33 kilometers from the city of Cusco just east of the Cordillera de Vilcabamba. This great place is formed by many architectural structures scattered on the slopes and the upper part of the mountain, but the most striking are its groups of platforms.
Pisac Handicraft Market
The Pisac market takes place in the city square. This market is a very colorful and lively place, where the most famous Andean crafts made by Cusco hands are offered. Among the crafts that stand out are the textile pieces, ponchos, backpacks, hats, etc. In this market we can also see ceramic crafts , such as necklaces, queros or ceremonial vessels, etc.
After visiting Pisac we will go to Urubamba, where we will enjoy a delicious buffet lunch (not included).
After enjoying our lunch we will go directly to the archaeological complex of Ollantaytambo. The city of Ollantaytambo is also known as the "Living Inca People". The main function of this city was to protect the entrance to the city of Cusco through this part of the valley and to avoid possible invasions of the inhabitants of the jungle.
Our last place to visit is Chinchero, where the royal hacienda of Túpac Inca Yupanqui, one of the last Incas, is located. In addition you can also appreciate the Andean women wearing their traditional dresses and their typical hairstyles.
it was a nice trip, i liked it so much.
