Do yourself a favor and allot one entire day to exploring the Pisac ruins and strolling through this incredible market place full of incredible wares, fruits, vegetables, crafts, jewelry, clothing and even raw meat! The locals gather to shop, sell and socialize. The colors, the variety, the energy of the people, just awesome! Tip: BE SURE you either have Peruvian... More

as part of a 1 day trip to the sacred valley, we stopped at Pisac, one of the most beautiful Inca sites. Make sure you go all the way up to the terraces (views from there are gorgeous). Pisac market is also an enjoyable experience. This is a must when you are in the Cusco-area. We did the trip with... More

It's part of a sacred valley trip. Somehow I felt its terraces pretty much like terraces in Asian country - which they use it for their agriculture. During my visit I saw wood made in triangle shape and asked my guide about what's that for. The answer was to protect the soil from the upper terrace falling to lower step.... More

We just returned from Peru. For the Pisac ruins, we recommend Ruben Escobar Alvarez as a guide. His English is excellent and he is very knowledgeable. His phone is 984-827461

We took a day trip to the Sacred Valley and stopped in Pisac. Unfortunately, it was not market day, but we enjoyed the experience just the same.

Visited at the end of a Sacred Valley tour. Was very nice since it was late and we had the place to ourselves. Pretty incredible what the "primitive" Incas produced.

This was our last ruins after being in Peru for over a week, but they still didn't disappoint. Many people walked back to town after the ruins, but it didn't appear that special to me.
