Sacred Valley&Maras Moray Tour

Sacred Valley. Cusco and the Sacred Valley were the center of the Inca universe, as the Vilcanota river was a sacred river for the Incas, who saw in this course the terrestrial counterpart of the Milky Way and for its excellent climate, Lands Fertile we managed to grow about one hundred varieties of maize. In addition the towns of Ollantaytambo and Pisac were sacred places for the Incas from where they made astronomical observations, offerings and important rituals to the Sun god (Inti) and the Pachamama.

After lunch we will visit the archaeological complex of Ollantaytambo, another sacred place where we will have the opportunity to explore the archaeological center and the streets of this beautiful Inca town and thus have a clear idea of how this military, religious and cultural center was during the Empire Incaico.
