Sacred Valley Tour Full Day, This Valley of the Incas was undoubtedly a key area of settlement to the Incas. Its agreeable climate and fertile plains make a rare and fruitful combination for the high Andes. It was also the route to the jungle and therefore an area with access to the fruits and plants of the tropical lowlands. The Sacred Valley served as a buffer zone, protecting Cusco from incursions of the Antis, the fierce jungle tribes who from time to time raided the highlands.

Pick up the passengers from your hotel to start our trip to the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
In the first instance we will visit the archeological site of Pisaq, which in the Inca era was a strategic military point due to its location. Then we will descend to visit the colorful artisan market in the town of Pisaq.
Then we will continue our journey to the city of Urubamaba where we will stop for lunch.
After lunch, we will go to the fortress of Ollantaytambo, an Inca city that had a religious, political and agricultural function.
In Ollantaytambo we can find the only original Inca city in its design that is still intact.
Luego retornaremos a la ciudad de Cusco a través de Chinchero, una ciudad dedicada al cultivo de papas y la producción de magníficos textiles.
Durante este regreso, nos detendremos en el centro de producción de tejidos con técnicas ancestrales Apu Pitusiray, donde podemos apoyar a las comunidades de tejedores con la compra de sus obras.
