The Sacred Valley is one of the most important tourist destinations, which is located in the Peruvian Andes. This valley has a climate and geography that was used by the Incas for agriculture, currently, we can find in this area the best corn in Peru. In the Sacred Valley, there are important archaeological monuments and indigenous towns.
Places to visit:
1.-ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE OF PISAC.
One of the most important places in the Sacred Valley, the Pisac National Archaeological Park is made up of groups of archaeological remains, including platforms, aqueducts, paths next to walls and doorways, canalized water channels, cemeteries, bridges, etc. The area covered by this group is 4 square km in area. On this area are the ruins occupying the hills, they appear forming groups of complicated disposition, while in others isolated constructions are noticed. It was one of the main centers of agriculture in Inca times.
2.-ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE OF OLLANTAYTAMBO.
Our next visited place is the only town denoted as the “City of the Living Inca” because its inhabitants still live according to the uses and customs inherited by their ancestors. This place was constructed for military, agricultural, and religious uses as well as to control the management of travelers along the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
We can appreciate the ramparts and watchtowers that were used by the military, the massive terraces that were used for agriculture, and the religiously worshipped sources of water. After this, we will return to Cusco, or if you need to, you can stay in order to take the train to the city of Aguas Calientes – Machupicchu.
3.- ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE OF CHINCHERO.
Chinchero is known as “the City of the Rainbow” because this is a place where this marvelous optical phenomenon is seen the majority of the time. Also known for the use of the very colorful traditional costumes worn by its inhabitants, this place is also very special because it has retained the entire ancient process from beginning to end of creating these garments by using the ancient Incan technique which focuses on the delicate details. Chinchero, as an archaeological site, was an agricultural production center in the Inca era where we can still appreciate its terraces. The Temple of Our Lady of Monserrat was built on the palace of the Inca, Tupac Yupanqui. After this, we will return to Cusco, or if you need to, you can stay in order to take the train to the city of Aguas Calientes – Machupicchu.
