Sacred valley of the Incas

Recommended
From the ruins of Pisac to the fortress of Ollantaytambo passing by the salt mines of Maras and the amazing terraces of Moray, the Sacred Inca Valley bears witness to the might of the Incan Empire in the 15C. The scale of the crops, the highly sophisticated irrigation techniques and architecture of the edifices, all more impressive than the other that are dotted along the Río Urubamba, are a testimony to the this talented civilisation. It is impossible not to be gripped by the magic of this valley, flanked by steep mountain slopes.

Peru : a hymn to nature

The osmosis between Incan culture and nature is nowhere more visible than in the Sacred Valley. Temples, agricultural sites and towns are devoted to the glory of nature, still unspoiled and still worshipped by its inhabitants.
