    The so called Sacred Valley is the valley of the Urubamba River. It's a fertile land for growing corn, potatoes, quinoa and other crops up to today and it was sacred for the incas.

    You'll most likely will be taken to Pisac on your day trip to the Sacred Valley. Pisac is a village that was populated by the Spanish, as a reduction village, which meant that they took people from several places and brought them all to live together, so they could avoid rebellions and collect taxes.

    Bustling with vendors and visitors in the square, four churches tower over them. It is incredible to see the heart of the Inca capital. There are many great restaurants nearby and alleys to discover with Inca stonework walls.

    The Inca Trail

    5
    29 reviews

    The most beautiful but also most challenging backpacking/hiking I have done - The Inca Trail! The trail to Machu Picchu is amazing, however it is not just about the destination. The journey there is all part of the wonderful experience. Train for it and give yourself time to acclimate.

    Ollantaytambo

    93 kilómetros al NE, Cuzco Peru
    4.5
    26 reviews

    Most people visit Ollantaytambo for a few hours as part of a day tour of the Sacred Valley. I'm guilty of the same, but I wish we'd spent a night or two here rather than in Cusco. It's a beautiful Incan town with some really interesting ruins. Besides that, there are some really cute places to stay and some nice ...

    4.5
    25 reviews

    Sacsayhuaman is an Inca temple built on a hill about 2km North of Cusco. Lots of people think it was a fortress because it's positioned on the top of a hill, but it was actually a temple for the sun. The temple was made of huge rocks, that were dragged there using human power. The largest rock weights 150 tons ...

    Cusco Cathedral

    4.5
    16 reviews

    The Cusco Cathedral is very impressive. It took 109 years to be built and it was built on top of Inca Wiracocha's palace. It has three main rooms, two side rooms adorned with pure gold altars and the main one with a breathtaking silver altar. The cathedral is very ostentatious, because the Spanish thought that decorating it with gold and ...

    San Blas

    Plazoleta San Blas, Cuzco Peru
    4.5
    9 reviews

    San Blas area of Cusco is much quieter than the main square but filled with ancient Inca streets and a mixture of Spanish colonial homes. Many locals referred to it as the art district. There are some nicer hotels in this district as well because they get the stunning views of Plaza de Armas from the hillside.

    Moray

    13 kilómetros del Cusco, Cuzco Peru
    4.5
    10 reviews

    Moray was the first Inca ruin we visited on our tour through the Sacred Valley. This archaeological site was used by the Inca people as an agricultural experiment, growing crops at different levels along the terrace. My first impression was that it looked like a crop circle sunken down into a hole. The land also appeared dry, but we were ...

    Mercado Central de San Pedro

    My absolute favorite public food market in the entire world! A must visit for foodies and adventurous travelers in Cusco. We saw some pretty interesting things there including someone selling pickled snakes, an indigenous shaman selling what looked like blood (but turned out to be Sangre de Drago, a rich red Amazonian tree sap that is thought to cure whatever ...

    Attractive cathedral. I like it as much for the backdrop and ambience that It creates than I do as a building / cultural sight. Must visit in Cusco.

    A little detour from our trip to the Pisac market that we didn't mind. The farm had llamas, alpacas, and vicunas that we could pet and feed! I am a sucker for that... It was also helpful for to understand the difference in quality of the cloth from each animal. Later on at the Pisac market, this knowledge helped us ...

    Andean Overland

    Calle Queshua 236, Cusco, Peru

    3 reviews

    I trekked the Inca Trail with this local company and had a great time. The local guides were enthusiastic and had studied up on history and culture, which made the walk more educational and enlightening. The cooks and porters were also awesome, even when a few in our group got altitude sickness and lagged behind.

    A great trek ( you can choose a 4-8 days trek) going around the Ausangate peak. Try to hire a local guide and his donkey, buy some food at the market and enjoy the walk. The most amazing views, the light changes all the time, the landscape too; you won't bump into many other people. Highlight of the trek: a ...

    5 reviews

    A small archaeological site near Cusco that was said to be an old military base. The Inca used the fortress to watch over the valley and lands below from intruders that were encroaching upon Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. There wasn't much to look at here compared to other sites. Since we came in the fall, it was cold and ...

    The Cuzco Trolley is an excellent way to see Cuzco and its surrounds. The trolley leaves the main square every hour at the hour from 10 in the morning to the evening (times vary depending on season). The price is very reasonable. There is also a map and audio guide available as the wooden trolley takes its passenger around the ...
