Tour description

The Sacred Valley of the Incas is located at an altitude of 2790 meters a.s.l. (9150 ft.). Here are located the towns of Pisaq, Calca, Yucay, Urubamba, Ollantaytambo and Chinchero. In each of them are archaeological remains that were built by different Incas and used as fortresses, temples and ceremonial places. The Sacred Valley was historically one of the main points of production and wealth of their territory. It is still the place where, as a heritage of the Incas, the biggest corn (maize grain) of the world is grown.

The first stop on the tour will be in Pisaq, which offers a big archaeological site and a craft market.

After that the group will enjoy a buffet lunch at Urubamba (please ask for the restaurant Tunupa, a great buffet with beautiful views to the river).

Then, at the furthest point of the tour we will visit Ollantaytambo, which dates from the XV century and where people still live in Inca houses.

This tour will end with the visit of Chinchero, where still amazing traditional textile art and pottery is practiced and as well the group will visit its colonial church. Its highlights are the important colonial painting of the centuries XV to XVII.
