A lot has already been written about the "Parque Arqueológico de Ollantaytambo". As an important part of the "Valle Sagrado de los Incas", it should not be missed by any traveler. "Ollantaytambo's" ruins and town are located at about 70km Northwest of Cusco and date from 15th century. It was the royal estate of Incas Pachacuti and Yupanqui. From a stone throne at the top of the terraces, they would admire the mountains and valley. At the town below, the Inca nobility lived. Beautiful ruins, innumerous steps to climb up and a small town preserving the fascinating Inca culture for the future generations! Enjoy!

Ollantaytambo is a town in the Sacred Valley of southern Peru that is located next to the Urubamba River, between snow-capped mountains. Ollantaytambo, is a huge Inca fortress with large stone terraces on a hill. The main points of this complex are the Temple of the Sun and the Ñusta fountain. The old Inca town can still see Inca houses in perfect condition, where they are still inhabited by the inhabitants, that is why it is known as the living Inca town as in Inca times with cobbled streets and stone and adobe buildings.

Major archaeological site of the Inca Empire located 45 miles NW of Cusco at an altitude of 9,160 ft. Dates to mid 1400s. Massive Inca terraces and temples served as an astrological site and agricultural experimental station. Because of the height of the terraces, there were many temperature variations from top to bottom. The Inca planted the same crop at multiple levels to determine which temperature yielded the biggest crop. When the Inca settled a new area, they used this science to determine what crops to plant. Fancinating!

After having visited some other ruins in Peru already we initially were unsure about taking a guide for the ruins of Ollantaytambo. My partner and I had made previous experiences where many guides in places with many tourists present only the information you can already find online about the ruins/site, often with limited English skills. We were thus not looking for a 'human audio' book but rather someone who is able to also answer our questions and go beyond the generic information you get in every place. In Ollantaytambo we decided to give it another try and ended up with one of the most informative and kind people we have met on our Peru vacation in October/November 2019! Wilian was the name of our guide. He asked us how much we already knew and tailored our walk through the ruins of Ollantaytambo to our level of knowledge. Wilian also had impressive English skills and a kind, friendly way. We shared many laughs and he answered all of our niche-questions about Quechua culture and the Inca Empire. I do not know how a tour with another guide in a blue shirt on the site would have been. I do know, however, that Wilian made it worth paying for a guided tour. We realised how much we would have missed out on when visiting Ollantaytambo. To be honest, I enjoyed it almost a bit better than the tourist-overwhelmed Machu Picchu as we really had the time and guidance to understand what had happened in Ollantaytambo a few hundred years before our visit. We can only recommend a walk with him. A big thank you from Switzerland to Wilian!
