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.

The Pisac Ruins are beautiful and the view of the town and valley from the Ruins is absolutely stunning! We had a very informative guide for the ruins who played a flute? for us while telling us the stories of the ancient people who once lived there.... it was magical listening to the music while being in such a beautiful...

This Inca site has many agricultural terraces cascading down the mountainside. There are several sets of crumbling buildings at different levels, and a beautiful stone entry provides passage from the site to the Inca Trail, which passes through this site. Be prepared to walk up many levels to see the entire site.

The drive to get up here is great, some beautiful scenery along the route small towns with narrow streets. This is a big area, lots of walking, some high, so if you would rather not, you can take a different route but still see everything. There were loads of people selling food and souvenirs along entry route. There are lots... More

My family and I visited Pisac mostly because it was listed on our Tourist Pass. We found the town and the ruins amazing. t's a bit of a butt kicker compared to many of the other ruins so expect a good hike. We got a late start which I don't recommend the ruins are a good 4-5 hours themselves and... More

The town is small and quiet, has a nice charm about it. It is 100% tourist oriented but still nice, and the Sunday market is quite large. The ruins are a decent hike up from the town, easy to find the trail just ask. Recently the tunnel to get to the top half of the hike was blocked off, but... More

If you are doing a tour of the sacred valley, this will likely be one of the first stops on the tour. The site is a lot larger that you think it is, a lot of room to walk around. There is an uphill portion with stairs, but if you cannot manage, there is a lot of flat area to... More

This beautiful site probably started as a military outpost and today it is a great place to see the very precise buildings. The terraces were so well built that they still stand today. Be sure to have a guide so that you can get the history. This is a very easy/safe drive from Cusco. Don't miss the Pisac Ruins. In... More

Visited the site via a tour bus that took us to the upper parking lot. From there it is a relatively easy walk to the upper terraces and guard house above. I was impressed with the enormity of the terraces and awed by the breathtaking view. I would suggest taking a guided tour as they can provide background that you... More
