Home Tours Cultural tours Sacred Valley Tour 1D


The Sacred Valley was a highly appreciated area by the Incas. The Sacred Valley was one of the main areas of food production, because the land is composed of many rivers that descend in the valley.

Itinerary

Early in the morning we start the excursion to the Urubamba Valley, the Sacred Valley of the Incas. We will visit the picturesque Indian Pisac Market held on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, the shopping paradise of the Andes. After that we will go to the Pisac ruines just above the little town, on the slope of the mountains.

In the afternoon, passing through the towns of Calca and Urubamba, we visit the Inca Fortress and Citadel of Ollantaytambo. This fortress was built to guard the entrance to this part of the Valley and protect it from possible invasion from the tribes in the lower jungle. You can walk through the streets of the town, and get a good idea of what this strategic military, religious, and agricultural centre was like during the era of the Inca Empire. On our way back to Cusco we visit the picturesque andean village of Chinchero to visit the ruins of the Royal Hacienda of Tupac Inca Yupanqui. We will admire a well-preserved Inca Wall in the Main Square, and visit the beautiful Colonial temple built on Inca foundations.
Late in the afternoon we return to Cusco.
