Surrounded by beautiful mountains, impressive terraced Incan ruins, a fun marketplace in the center of Pisac and great sandwich shoppes surrounding the center market square, make Pisac a great stop while traveling the Sacred Valley. I recommend making Pisac your stop for lunch to relax and browse after a morning of exploring and hiking!

This is a lively town around 35 minutes by transit tourist van from Cusco. There's a large - but rather touristy market there - and the food we tried in one of the local restaurants near the market - was also rather uninteresting. The views of terraces and ruins, however - are spectacular. It's a pleasant morning trip from Cusco... More

We spent 3 hours hiking and still didn't see it all. Would love to go back and start with the cemetery since we didn't get that far. The terraces are huge and the ruins are awesome. The best part is there are no crowds.

We visited Pisac on our tour of the Sacred Valley. Could have spent more time than allotted but in the context of the day tour we at least got to see it. It was very busy with tour buses but we arrived earlier than most so the crowds were not too bad from what our guide told us.Our tour stopped... More

Visited the ruins at Moray near pisco which was very impressive after many photos we moved on the walk it's a lot hard work with the altitude but it's all worth the effort

Incredible. I was on a organized tour, so again not enough time spent in the good spots. I would do it again with a rental car/driver

Went here during a sacred valley day tour. Beautiful spot, just needed more time that was allocated by the tour. Spent less than an hour, but could've stayed for half a day. Amazing!

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

Worth a couple of hours. The market open on Sunday AM has good values. The views approaching the city are terrific.
