Maras and Moray
You can find the ancient sites of Maras and Moray just a short drive away from Pisac. The two places differ in appearance, but they both reflect the same spirit of innovation that helped various Pre-Columbian people build prosperous societies in this unique landscape. Moray is believed to have been an agricultural microclimate laboratory that the Incans used to test how well crops would grow at various elevations. On the other hand, the Maras Salt Mines resemble a landscape from another planet, and their image has captivated artists for decades. It shouldn't take you must longer than two hours to visit these two sites, but they are absolutely worth the trip. Consider hiring a bike tour between Maras and Moray to add a bit of adrenaline to the experience!
