After breakfast, our private transport will pick us up to take us to the Sacred Valley of the Inkas, visiting the complex of Pisac on the way, located 33 km/ 20 miles from the city of Cuzco. Pisac is one of the most important archaeological sites in the Sacred Valley, as it was during Inka times, the city was built in the form of an animal; Pisac means partridge, and it has the same shape.
There are agricultural terraces built by the Inkas which are still used today.
With military, religious and agricultural constructions, the site had at least a triple function.
After visiting the typical and famous Pisac market, we enjoy our lunch in a tourist restaurant, and then continue our journey to Ollantaytambo (2792 masl / 9160 ft). Ollantaytamo was an important fortress, due to its great surrounding walls, it was actually used as a storage city, strategically located in the Sacred Valley. It is a living Inka town, and its narrow stone streets make it an attractive and relaxing place. Return to our hotel.

We must also respect the customs and traditions of the local people.
