On this full day tour we visit Pisaq and then drive through the Sacred Valley to Moray and Chinchero. The latter two are not well known by tourists, but definitley worth seeing.
Pisaq is like Machu Pic’chu in that it sits on top of a mountain, and the views from there are breathtaking. Also, although most of the 4 levels here are Inca, there are tantalizing signs that the megalithic builders were there before…
Moray is thought by most guides and archaeologists to have been an agricultural experimentation of the Inca, but its amazing acoustics brings this into question.
The above photo shows one of three massive sets of circular terraces at Moray.
Chinchero has a huge church built on top of Inca foundations, but what is more intriguing are the shaped stones “recycled” from the older master megalithic builders, like this door frame.
And this amazing portal almost no one sees, tucked away but only 10 minutes walk from the main archaeological site.
