Although it seems a relatively free place for tourists; well, there are not many tourists, the “foreigners” you will see in that place for the most part, are not visitors, but rather people who decided to change their countries to settle in this beautiful town in the Sacred Valley. It seems lost in time, people walk without hardship. This is an obligatory place for people looking for the best crafts of the valley and fine porcelain based on the Andean culture. From here you can visit the Maras salt flats and the agricultural laboratory of the village of Moray.
With stone paved streets, stairs, arches and squares, Ollantaytambo would be one of the best places to visit, even if you overlook some of the most impressive remains of the Inca Empire, however you cannot do this.
Ollantaytambo was a fortress, a kind of control center before accessing Machu Picchu, has temples, ceremonial sites, residences and terraces. It is a mystery why they never completed the “temple of the Sun”; before it was thought that it was because the Spaniards arrived; however, now they are considering the possibility that Ollantaytambo was there before the arrival of the Incas. Perhaps this could explain why Ollantaytambo is aligned with other ancient places on the planet; among them, the pyramids of Egypt, the Easter islands in Chile and others, belonging to the most important ancient cultures on the planet. To six kilometers of the citadel of Ollantaytambo can see the quarry of where the stones were extracted to construct it, is impressive because they had to divert the river towards nearby channels to extract them of the same bed. Do not miss the town of Ollantaytambo, even more because you will have to reach this place, to board trains to Machu Picchu or to start the Inca Trail.
The town of Pisac is famous for its world-famous market, which attends every day, but the main fair is held on Sundays; here you can buy all kinds of handicrafts, alpaca garments, traditional jewelry (gold and silver) and fantastic Peruvian food.
On the slopes above the town of Pisac you will find extraordinary Inca constructions. This ancient Inca town has the best system of agricultural terraces reached by the Incas in all the Andes; buildings finely assembled with perfectly fitted stones, residences, towers, military fortresses, astronomical observatories, etc.; the Inca cemetery stands out, the largest ancient cemetery in the American continent.
