Ruin Historic Site
Once at the heart of the Inca Empire, Sacred Valley of the Incas plays home to many of the region's most popular archeological sites, cities, and places to visit. Grab your boots and trek through the area to get an up-close look at the mountain environment via the network of hiking trails and paths. Explore the rugged mountain valley to get a glimpse of Inca fortifications and settlements like Pisac, Moray, Tipon, and Ollantaytambo, which feature terraced hillsides and imposing stone citadels. The valley also boasts a number of quiet villages and colonial-era gems; Cusco is perhaps the best known, but plenty of smaller villages featuring markets and sights of their own line the valley's length.
