We visited the lower part of Ollantatambo in the afternoon after spending the morning at teh ruins of Pisac. We were too tired to walk up to the top but we thoroughly enjoyed visiting the lower part and learn about the Inca architecture. Recommend it highl.

The bridge is just like any other old little bridge in Peru. Walk passed the bridge for a great view. Walk on for about 30mins to the INKA POOL (or la piscina Inka). Ask a local or an Awamaki volunteer to take you, you will not find it on your own. The Inka Pool is SURREAL. It is a rectangle swimming pool all natural with 2 fresh water sources and ahhhh. Beware of dogs. Carry stones to throw at them if they get too close.

The ruins of Ollantaytambo were the first I've ever seen in my life. We were overwhelmed by the greatness, the hight, ... We visited the ruins from two sides. The view from the top makes you wonder how they build this hundreds of years ago.

If the trains to Machu Picchu from Cuzco are booked, you can always take the train from here. Yes, you need to get a taxi from Cuzco, but the cost is not that great and you get another attraction to visit. As others have described, the trail here is steep but well worth it. When you get to the top, look across at the mountain across the valley and ask yourself, "How the hell did they build that up there?"
The ruins here are modest, but worth the visit. You can take a guide which I thought was too expensive, or just do the trail yourself. Do visit the marketplace down below for some local items at reasonable cost. If you need to stay overnight, I can recommend the Hotel Sauce. Restaurants in town are also very good.

In my last visit to Ollantaytambo found that a ceramic artist Lucha Soler - open a studio in the old town . Soler who is presenting and selling very fine ceramics using local clay and hand burnishing. The pieces are original and contemporary.
Soler also taught his technique to two other artists in the village and they also are presenting and using similar techniques in their own studios.
If you are in Ollantaytambo and interested in Fine Pottery this place is worth a visit .
Soler studio is located in Patacalle Street in the old town
