Moray Archaeological Site
This splendid Inca site, which was used for both agricultural and ceremonial purposes, is an incredible introduction to the offerings of The Sacred Valley. The terraced bowl-like ruins were believed to be used in studying varying climates and how certain crops would respond to those climates; essentially making it a large agricultural laboratory. Many tour operators in Cusco will offer a stop at Moray but if you're looking to go on your own find a colectivo (Which is a small bus or van where the passengers all split the cost). Colin Roohan traveled to Peru courtesy of PromPeru, Travcoa, and LAN as part of AFAR’s partnership with The United States Tour Operators Association (USTOA), whose members provide travelers with unparalleled access, insider knowledge, and peace-of-mind to destinations across the globe. Hear more about Colin’s journey on the USTOA blog.
