SACRED VALLEY – CUSCO

You will start your trip visiting Ollantaytambo, making a series of stops at points of interest. The town of Ollantaytambo is a typical example of urban planning of the Incas, whose residents still live in accordance with their old traditions.

Maras and its surreal view is an impressive salt exploitation complex. Its huge salt deposits were used to trade them for other products with other parts of the empire. Moray’s archaeological site is composed of mysterious concentric circular terraces which, according to some scholars, would be an agricultural research centre. The higher external terraces would be at a higher temperature than the inner ones and could simulate the conditions of the different ecological strata of the empire. After your visit, you will be transferred to your hotel in Cusco for the evening.

Half Day Cusco City tour 

You will start your tour today by visiting Koricancha, also known as the “Temple of the Sun”, which was built by the Inca ruler Pachacuti and, upon the arrival of the Spaniards, became the base for the construction of the Santo Domingo Convent. Here, during the Inca Empire, reverence was surrendered to the sun, and there was even a time when the structure was covered in gold. Next, you will visit the beautiful Cathedral of Cusco, the most imposing monument in the Plaza de Armas. The construction of the cathedral took almost 100 years to complete, beginning in the mid-16th century. Hundreds of stones were extracted and transported from the Sacsayhuaman fortress under the command of the Ecclesiastical Council to use for the construction of the church.

You will continue your tour to the fortress of Sacsayhuaman, a magnificent building conceived and built by Inca ruler Pachacuti in the 15th century. The Sacsayhuaman complex was built with megalithic blocks, the transportation, and erection of which continue to be a fascinating mystery. The Inti Raymi Sun Festival is reenacted here every year on 24 June during the winter solstice. Continue on to Quenqo, located only four kilometres from the city of Cusco. Quenqo is an archaeological complex of mainly religious use where it is believed agricultural rituals were performed. Finally, you will head to Puka Pukara, located seven kilometres from the city of Cusco.

RECOMMENDATIONS

Comfortable and light clothing is the most convenient choice for traveling on Peru’s coast, while warmer clothes are best for stays in the highlands. Passengers must not wear sleeveless T-shirts, shorts, miniskirts or very tight clothes when visiting temples, religious places or official buildings. Sunblock lotion, sunglasses, a hat or cap and a mosquito repellent can be also very helpful during the trip.

Please have in mind that check-in hour in most hotels starts at 1:00 pm. Early-arriving guests will be subject to room availability while waiting in the hotel lobby.
