The Sacred Valley
The Sacred Valley of the Incas, also known as the Urubamba River Valley, was once the heart of the Incan Empire, and it is still inhabited by Quechua-speaking people to this day. Since Pre-Columbian times, the valley has been an important hub for maize production and mineral extraction. The area begins just 15 kilometers north of Cusco City, but it feels peaceful and remote. The valley floor is dotted with a series of isolated weaving villages populated by indigenous people. Make sure to visit Chincheros, where you cant miss the view of the charming local church.
While you're in the valley, consider making a trip up to the lofty Inca citadels of Pisac and Ollantaytambo, the latter of which resembles an impressive ancient stone fortress.
Pisac, Sacred Valley, Peru
Pisac, the starting point to the Sacred Valley, is one of the most colorful and diverse cities in Peru, and with far fewer tourists. The Inca ruins are stunning with stunning views of the hillside terraces and the rugged Andes. The colorful market is a fun places to shop for souvenirs and locally-made alpaca weavings. You can dine on a local pachamanca meal which consists of meat and potatoes cooked with herbs in an underground earth oven of hot stones.
