A short distance from Cusco, the Sacred Valley stretches along the Urubamba River; a beautiful region of rolling countryside, where there are many well-preserved Inca sites.
Pisac is renowned for its colourful market held weekly in the main plaza. Above the town are the sprawling remains of a magnificent Inca fortress. You can still see the original Inca terracing, temples, tombs and ceremonial baths and the views of the surrounding valley are superb.
The small village of Ollantaytambo is one of the oldest recorded settlements in the Americas. Inca water channels still cut through the cobbled streets, the fortress that looms high above the town witnessed one of the few Inca victories over the Spanish.
