Ollaytantambo is a quaint, friendly, town in the Sacred Valley that is worth a stay. It was among our favorite places in a long list of places we visited during a three week trip. We wish we had allotted more than a single night!

Excellent hike at the edge of town. Very accesible from any place near the Plaza de Armas. Spectacular views if other local ruins and surrounding mountains.

Wow, this historic site has it all! Terraces, Sun Gate, active waterfalls, within the many levels and sections of ancient remains/ruins - many rock/stone pieces from construction and destruction eras abound. Many people the day of visit allowed interaction with llamas and the faces around everyday animals behavior (pooping)...and trying to stay out of cameras path...fun and funny place to be. The monolithic proportions were amazing once again.

This was such a unique town and worth taking some time to walk up and down the stone streets carrying water down from the mountains. It is very small (a 30 minute walk is enough) and the square if very nice as well. Neat and clean. Great to stop for a coffee in one of the shops. Do not just "drive through" get out an walk around for 30 min from the main square up one of the side streets to get a feel for what it must have been like in the time of the Incas.

This was great to see after Machu Picchu. Having a guide is key to understanding what you are looking at. Great views and a nice place to walk around the ruins. The small artisanal market is nice outside the gate as well.. This park is one of the parks on the Tourist Visitor pass which is worth purchasing if you are visiting several sites *which most tourists do)
