A beautiful Andean village famous for its spectacular mountain views, colorful marketplace, traditional textile weaving center and an ancient church with unique floral and religious interior motifs. Also home of well-preserved Inkan ruins. 30 kms from Cusco, 3762 m above sea level.
|Maras salt mines
Maras, where we can see the famous and ancient salt mines of the colonial era. The contrast of the white pools of salt with the green valley is stunning and a must for an spectacular postcard of the Sacred Valley of the Inkas.
Moray is breathtaking, due to colossal concentric terraces that resemble a large amphitheater. Researchers speculate that the positioning created at least 20 different micro-climates that enabled the Inkans to measure and improve agricultural production.
