Best Things to Do and See in Urubamba Perú

Urubamba Perú Sacred Valley

Urubamba Peru is a charming town situated in the heart of the Sacred Valley near the Urubamba River, 1 hour from Cusco city. Urubamba is located at an elevation of 2,871 m (9,420ft).

Urubamba is the largest town in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. The Urubamba town is the perfect “jumping off point” for exploring the best highlights of Peru’s Sacred Valley. Over the last 5 years many visitors spend more time here either to acclimatize to the altitude or as a stop-off on their way to Machu Picchu. 

From Urubamba you can easily reach some Inca sites on your own, via public transportation or taking a day tour from Urubamba. If you are short on time but want to see the best Sacred Valley highlights and the most popular day trips from Urubamba with us from your hotel in Urubamba contact us.

Here are the best things to do in Urubamba Peru and why Urubamba town is the perfect base for visitors to explore the best hidden gems of Peru’s Sacred Valley.

Best Things to Do in Urubamba

Visit the Traditional Market in Urubamba: Urubamba is home to one of the most authentic markets you can visit in Peru. Locals come from all over the Sacred Valley to sell their products, sucha as cheese, potted plants, flowers, clothing and much more.

Urubamba local market also offers food stands with typical food such as, for example Cuy (guinea pig), fresh trout (trucha), and stuffed peppers wrapped in a batter and cooked in oil.

Livestock Market: Locals also sell a wide range of poultry, ducks, guinea pigs and fluffy chicks. The livestock area is probably one of the most interesting aspects of the market and can only be spotted on Wednesdays.

Stroll Through the Urubamba Cemetery: The colonial Urubamba cemetery is absolutely beautiful and a visit to it is one of the best things to do in Urubamba. 

Artisan Shops: In Urubamba there are marvelous handicraft stores. Many stores include elaborate ceramics based on Inca design and other handmade items.

Maras Cusco, Maras of the Sacred Valley

Maras is a town located 48 km northwest of the city of Cusco, 12 km from Urubamba and 3028 meters above sea level. The temperature fluctuates between 1 to 21 degrees Celsius.

Maras was an important town during the viceroyalty (it was the main supplier of salt of the southern mountain range), as it is demonstrated by the church and the houses that still preserve the coats of arms of indigenous nobility in their facades. The houses are made of adobe, white walls with blue roofs and windows, the streets are made of stone and mud. On the lintels you can read inscribed in stone the date on which they were built, their owner or some shield or ornament.

Maras was founded by the Spaniards in 1556, and was in charge of the encomendero Pedro Ortiz de Orue, whose house is located one block from the main square, on the lintel of its door reads the details of its owner, it was he who instituted this custom, which is still in force today. It is recommended to see the house belonging to the Inca Tupac Sinchi Roca (Jerusalem 249), the Jesuit façade (Jerusalem 233), the façade of Sancho Usca Paucar (Jerusalem 245) that surprises by its work and ornamentation.

The San Francisco Church of Assisi ordered to be built by Orue, has four altarpieces of baroque style of the seventeenth century, with beautiful carvings and covered with gold leaf. It has paintings on its walls by the painter from the Cusco school Antonio Sinchi Roca, with scenes from the Gospel and portraits of saints.

At present the main economic activity of Maras is agriculture. Among its most visited attractions, the Salineras, located 10 km. from the town, stand out. Very close is the Andenes de Moray.

Moray

Moray is made up of 4 slightly elliptical galleries, which the locals call “muyus”. The largest gallery has a depth of 45 m and the average height of each platform is 1.80 m.

For the researchers, the circular platforms of Moray functioned as an agricultural research center, where each level offered a different climatic environment allowing different plants to be grown experimentally.

The platforms were built on retaining walls filled with fertile soil. They were irrigated using complex irrigation systems. At the bottom of the platforms, there is a system that stores the water coming from the rains. Following this practice, more than 250 plant species were cultivated.

Other studies indicate that the site was used for astronomical observation and to monitor the climatic changes that could occur, by tracking the sunlight and shadows generated by the high mountains of the area.

2) Is it better to stay in Urubamba or Ollantaytambo?

Ollantaytambo offers a fairly low elevation as well as Urubamba, however it is not the same to stay in Urubamba than in Ollantaytambo because both places offer different things, if you are looking to enjoy nature, the sound of the birds when you wake up then Urubamba is your best option since Ollantaytambo is a quite touristy and small town.

3)When is the best time to visit Urubamba?

The dry season (April to October) is the best time to visit Maras and Moray. The days are sunnier and there is less chance of rain during those months.

6) Is the tour to Maras and Moray dangerous?

The only problem during the tour can be caused by altitude sickness (headache, nausea, malaise). Otherwise, the tour is safe and well organized.

7) Are the schedules flexible?
