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

Another stop on our guided tour of the Sacred Valley and unfortunately we got here late so we weren't able to see the entire Archeological Park as they were starting to close it for the day. Nonetheless, we still learned about the history of the site, the location itself, the design of the terraces, and the hillside that was used... More

Beautiful views, amazing structures and history. If you are out of shape like me it is quite a walk, tons of stairs.

Absolutely worse the mild effort to get here from Cusco. We did a self guided tour/hike of the ruins after taking a tivo van from Cusco (roughly 50 min) and deciding not to bother with a tour guide. We entered the site behind the market and trekked uphill to some fantastic archeological ruins and sweeping views of the valley and... More

This place blew me away. One of the most beautiful views I've ever beheld. The ruins were amazing, but the view of the valley below was wholly mesmerizing. Do yourself a favor and schedule a stop here - and the Sacred Valley in general - on your visit to the region. You won't regret it!

Amazing place that augments a visit to Machu Picchu for a more thorough understanding of Inca civilization.

Pisac is one of those ruins that you just have to hike to believe. Get a ride to the top of the ridge and enter from above, walking downhill all the way through ancient Pisac. The modern village and the outdoor market are at the bottom, and it is easy from here to get a ride in either direction, toward... More

The views and ancient ruins were spectacular. It was at the head of the sacred valley and provided sweeping vistas and a feeling of a special people and time.
