This stop was part of our G-Adventure tour to MP, with our invaluable guide Rive. While Pisac is not as large or as well known as Machu Picchu, it still displays incredible stone walls, buildings and terraces. We climbed up to the top for the great views. While we climbed up, a flutist was playing his pan flute way at... More

The ruins of the ancient city of Pisac are situated on a high ridge, surrounded by Incan agricultural terraces curling around the hills in graceful curves. This was the first archeological site we visited in the Sacred Valley, and was an interesting introduction to the amazing Inca culture.

We did this archaeological site as part of a day trip in the Sacred Valley. We had a local guide who explained the buildings and history of the site which was really interesting.

Pretty amazing ruin. I recommend hire a guide who will explain the significance of what you are looking at. Also, wear a hat and sun screen, the sun light is strong!

The archaeological site of Pisac was the final site on a Sacred Valley Tour i did from Cusco. Days beforehand, I did the Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu. Pisac is near Cusco, and well worth the drive. I went in the evening and there was hardly anyone here. The site of Pisac is not as enormous as some of the... More

Pisac is about an hour from Cusco. It draws hundreds of visitors every day but somehow it didn’t feel too crowded with visitors. The main town square is totally taken up by the large and sprawling market, which is well worth exploring. Sellers are not overpowering or over-eager for to make you browse their stall, and it is fun to... More

The Incan ruins are something you have to experience in person to understand the amazing construction feats that were performed to build such massive structures at such a height. The terraces are beautiful. Be prepared to climb. We were all very tired after about 3 hrs. of up and down carved rock staircases. However, it was worth it. They had... More

a great archaeological site to see a more common incan town (as opposed to the awesome spendor of a machu picchu or ollantaytambo).

Pisaq is really well known for its archeological site. It's true that this is impressive, but the little village itself is also really cute and worthed a visit. I especially appreciated the fact that it's so easy to go to from Cusco. Really it takes only 45 minutes and there are always combis (minivan) going there. The market is also... More
