This is an archaeology site where you see the Spanish build over the incas palace. You can see the monastery present. There is a textile presentation where the women present the making of the garmen. Its amazing to see the natural material and herbs that change the process. You can buy some beautiful Ponchos and blankets and support the local industry.

The Sacred Valley is located in the Andean Highlands, and formed the heart of the Inca Empire at one time. The land was, and still is, very fertile for maize production. A large number of crops are still harvested there.

We stopped at a family’s home first, and sat through a demonstration of how the women weave the wool into fine threads to create sweaters, scarves, ponchos, etc. We then drove to the archaeological site.

The entrance to the grounds was right through the markets, and we could not help, but notice all the lovely vibrantly colorful items sold here. The smell of corn cooking was quite overwhelming, and we were tempted to buy and try some of that corn. It was really delicious.

The Spanish Church complex on the top of the hill is still standing from centuries back, and people still worship here on important occasions, and still gather here on the vast grounds for the festivals. All the buildings were built on the top of the Inca foundations.

The Inca architecture and their knowledge was simply amazing. The terraces on the mountainside where they brought the water via aqueducts and harvested the grains were an amazing site.

It was a visit well worth our time.

These ruins tell a story and it is even better if you have a native guide to share the history and culture of the Inca civilization. The winding road up is interesting and the scenery is great. At the site, take the time and venture around the whole site- residential, religious, and agricultural areas of the site. take some soles for local vendors and the bathroom!

Some good views and a large flat place. It’s very high and it might ruin the rest of your day, but it’s ok if combined with other attractions on the same day. Would be amazing in another place, but it has to be compared to what’s around.

We visited Chinchero, Moray and the Salineras (and Sexy Woman but skip that one) in one day, and this site was one of the highlights. Well maintained Inca terraces with lots of walks you can do through the valley. Highly recommend to plan in a few more hours than you think.

This is an expansive site. We started up at the church where a few locals were selling items but then went out to the rest of the area. We were there for several hours and went way out to the far side of the site, going down, down, down. Unfortunately, this means we ended up going up, up, up a lot of stairs at the end. If you are not yet acclimated, you will huff and puff. As this was one of our early stops, I watched my nailbed turn blue from lack of oxygen. Fascinating.

Go slow and enjoy the beauty of the ancient site.

We loved our visit to these ruins. With each new stop to view the amazing Incan civilization that really was only a short part of Peru's amazing history, we gained new insights and learned more about these people. These ruins especially helped us understand the agricultural methods used in the terraced farming. It was also a lovely town and the ruins were set in an area with great views. This is a good place to stop if you are in the area.

The entrance fee is included in the tourist ticket. I arrived at 6AM and I enjoyed the entire place alone. From 10AM, tours start to arrive.
Also walk around the village which is very beautiful.

Spanish church builds on top of Inca ruins over. Over 500 years old building and plaza with visible Inca foundations and terraces. Walking through the village to get to the plaza one can see the various building roofing and stonework styles. The weather can change quickly. We has sun, hail and a litle thunder and rain while we were here. Beautiful historical sight. (Visited 2022 with Peru Tripper)

Very far and isolated village on the altiplano. Colonial architecture mixed with Incan ruins. Many vendors and stray dogs. There is word of an airport coming to serve the area. A nice way to end a great Cuzco stay~
