You will be picked-up from your hotel at 8:30 a.m. in our bus to start the visit to the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
Our first stop is PISAQ, a picturesque town of mestizo and colonial physiognomy; located in the province of Calca, 32 kilometres from the Imperial City that has an impressive archeological site with terraces and ceremonial places. We will visit the handicraft, artesenal and local produce markets, as well as the arcaeloigical sacred remains of the Inca civilization.
We will then head to URUBAMBA, a beautiful town surrounded by magestic landscapes, including the snow capped mountain of Chicón. Here we will have our buffet lunch. Our next stop is OLLANTAYTAMBO, the architectural scenery is of exceptional interest for its size, style and originality of the buildings. Ollantaytambo is one of the most unusual and surprising archaeological parks in Peru, due to the variety in architecture styles and the uniquness of each one of them. Here we will visit the archaeological remains and the typical fairs and markets.
We will return to Cusco via CHINCHERO, another very important centre of agricultural production. We will visit the church that also is home to a Cusquenian school as well as various decorative elements that maintain their originality. Every Sunday local produces sell their produce at the local market, where bartering is still a common practice.
