Pisaq is located 33 km from the city of Cusco. The archaeological site of Pisac has the form of a very unique bird called ‘’perdiz’’ — which in Quechua is PISAQA or PISAQ.
Pisaq is a place full of history and is divided into two very marked sectors, Inca and colonial sector. The Inca sector, located in the high part of the mountain, is full of Inca constructions with numerous agricultural terraces. According to the studies carried out, these terraces served to feed a large part of the Tawantinsuyo. The archaeological sector of Pisac is made up of very important neighborhoods with the “SUNDIAL” INTIHUATANA. The cemetery, incidentally, is the largest in Tawantinsuyo. The agricultural area consists of platforms, deposits and surveillance spots. The colonial sector, located at the base of the archaeological zone, is conformed of
Colonial houses and a beautiful square. Here you will find the artisan market – one of the most visited spots by tourists.
Pisaq also offers us the color of a liturgical celebration in the language of the Incas “QUECHUA.” This is given every Sunday morning and all inhabitants of the communities near Pisaq come to hear the saint mass dressed in their typical costumes of the area.
It is located 60 km from the city of Cusco at an altitude of 2,800 m.a.s.l. Ollantaytambo is located on the banks of the Patacancha River in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. At present, the meaning of its name is unknown but many attribute it to the name of an Inca soldier who became a noble – OLLANTA. Ollantaytambo is considered to be an example of dominant architecture that during the Spanish invasion, was denominated as a fortress due to the resistance that the Inca WYANA CCAPAC placed in this place. Studies indicate that Ollantaytambo in the time of the Incas was a TAMBO (a place of rest). This was strategically built for the protection of the Inca state and the Sacred Valley of the Incas. The type of architecture that was used for its construction notes that Ollantaytambo is one of the most amazing works that the Incas have done, especially the form of union of the rock and the polish in the temple of the sun that is in the superior of Ollantaytambo. Ollantaytambo is divided into several sectors, such as the agricultural area, formed by its terraces, the religious area and the Urban area.
It is located 30 km from the city of Cusco at an altitude of 3,780 m.a.s.l. The real name of Chinchero has been lost with the passage of time. According to tradition, this town has been known as the “LAND OF RAINBOW” due to the constant rainbow formations in this area. For some scholars CHINCHERO is a very important area as far as location is concerned, divided into two levels: The upper level where a colonial temple is located that served for the indoctrination in religion to all the inhabitants of this part of the Andes and the low level where you can see 12 niches possibly to house the mummies of their former rulers. Chinchero is known for its alpaca fiber fabrics since most of the inhabitants are dedicated to this artisanal activity. Inhabitants still use the ancestral techniques of weaving and the natural inputs for the coloring of their threads with which the fabrics are made.
