Our first site on the sacred valley, on the first day. So our steps were small and slow, but it was worth it. Beautiful views, a special place. Worth the effort to hike up.

The Pisac archaeological site is usually visited as the first site on a day tour of the sacred valley. It is located in the beautiful sacred valley which is lush green and surrounded by mountains on all sides. There are 3 main aspects to this site. The terraces, the Pukara and the cemeteries. Since we were visiting this site as... More

I first visited Pisac 35years ago when the market was only 1x per week. It has changed a lot, the tailback of cars and coaches being the first clue. But despite this, the town still retains its charm, the coffee bars and restaurants are good, and shopping is generally cheaper than Cusco.

Great example of Incan technology and engineering. Large area to navigate with lots of steps and walking. Interesting burial sites in the cliffs around the site.

The site is in the hills behind Pisac, you ll need to take a taxi to get to the entrance at the top of the hill (13km) Once you have entered the site you can go down visiting the old villages and seeing the terrasses Really worth it, a must see in The region of Cusco

Amazing. It's huge. Terraces on the front and the side of the mountain. The village is on the back side and the temples are on top. I felt like I stepped back in time. You can't just buy a ticket for Pisac. The tickets cover multiple sites. The cheapest one includes 4 sites and costs S/70.
