We went after lunch so it was less crowded and more manageable to walk and enjoy. A good variety of items all at negotiable prices. Folks are pleasant, I feel I pressure and just enjoy looking around these markets

Great for colorful photos and seeing peruvians dressed in traditional garb. They will offer to pose with you but expect to be tipped so bring dollars. Great marketplace filled with everything you can think of. Reasonable prices.

After spending a week on a mission trip in the city of Pisac I really got to know the people. I also really enjoyed the shopping and sights here more than Machu Picchu. Less people and better prices. I would highly recommend for those looking...More
