The Sacred Valley of the Incas, located in the heart of the Peruvian Andes, is one of the most visited places in the department of Cusco. Its geographical and climatic characteristics made it used by the Incas for the cultivation of various products. At present, its fertile lands are used for the production of crops of great quality like corn and potatoes.
Composed of broken sinuous, small and fertile valleys, the Sacred Valley offers the visitor numerous archaeological sites and picturesque villages in which the inhabitants still preserve the traditions of their ancestors, merged with the customs of the Spanish conquistadors.
If you travel to Cusco, it is mandatory to visit the towns and archaeological monuments of Pisac, Calca, Urubamba, Ollantaytambo, Chinchero and the complex circular terraces of Maras-Moray. Local tourism agencies and operators offer various packages and activities. If you are one of those who like the adventure, we recommend that you do not miss the Rafting circuit in the Vilcanota river.
