In reading some reviews, the only reason I can imagine they downplay the Pisac ruins is because they did not finish the trek. We noted that the tour groups did not go beyond the tunnel or cave and continue on quite a ways to the ridge to the temple and best of the ruins, including water running in the aqueducts.... More

Spent a couple of hours in Pisac today. My wife and I got there and grabbed a guide on arrival. The views during our tour were breathtaking. We did the full circle which was about 5k. Definitely worth the effort. Just a tidbit about our guide Eduardo. He is part of 1 of125 families that live in the valley below... More

We stopped here as a group tour. We had a guided tour to the top of the ruins. I enjoyed my time at the Pisac Inca ruins site as there are some outstanding views to take in.

Pisac village located at the mountains surrounding the sacred valley and it is known for its Inca ruins. It is believed that Pisac was one of the entrances to the sacred valley and used to hold three roles: Agriculture, Defense, and Religion. There is enough evidence to justify these three roles by examing the ruins of the village. Among the... More

This is a must see if you are in the sacred valley. There's a lot to see here from terraces to ancient ruins. You can also take a 90 minute walk down the mountain into the Pisac market. Be aware the path down the mountain is not marked well and the map isn't all that helpful. So you may take... More

Stopped on my way to Ollantaytambo. Great colors and food at their Sunday market. Ruins are well worth the hike. Did the loop and Intihuantana is a great vantage spot to see most of the ruins.

The ruins are amazing. Take the tour to learn about what this agricultural city of the Incas was like. Simply stunning.

It is not as impressive as other ink ruins, at least that is my opinion. It is nice of course, but I would not go again.

After visiting Machu Picchu everything else seems average. Anyway there are some places worth seeing which is not the case of Pisaq. Unless it is on your way don't waste your time visiting it. You will find an Inca cemetery completely profaned and destroyed and just a bit more than that

Do not miss this outstanding site. It is worth the drive up the mountain to see the views but whats more impressive is the terraces built into the sides of the mountains. There is an energy vortex at the top and if you stand in it and lean over you wont fall down.
