To begin our package we will pick you up from the hotel at 8:40 am with a transportation from our company. For this tour we will take a path that will allow us to appreciate the impressive beauty of the Andes mountains north of the city of Cusco; during our adventure, the professional guide will illustrate us broadly about Inca history. Our Sacred Valley was undoubtedly a key territory in the Inca times and so is today. The first tour begins in Pisac, an archaeological site of great importance for its tombs, the Intihuatana (solar clock) and architecture, it is also one of the most extensive and well-designed agricultural centers in the Sacred Valley. After exploring, we will go to the village of Pisac to enjoy the largest artisan market in Cusco; then go to Urubamba for a delicious lunch.
Continuing with our tour we will go to the district of Ollantaytambo, located approximately 60 km northwest of the city of Cusco, where stands the archaeological center of the same name; we will observe the evidences of the types of Inca construction. We will also understand the Inca ideology and legacy. Finish is in Chinchero, where the Ayarmacas lived, who defended their territory and gave strong resistance before accepting their incorporation to the Inca empire; Chinchero was the place chosen by the Inca Tupac Inca Yupanqui to establish his residence, where he built beautiful palaces for his personal use. In 1536, in the midst of the Spanish Invasion, Manco Inca rebelled by setting fire to that city so that the invaders would not renew their provisions and stop chasing them while fleeing into the jungle. Finally we will return to Cusco city at 7:00 pm. A wonderful package for an impressive region of the Andes, ideal for the best of your vacation in Peru!
