Moray, Maras

(4.7/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Marvel at Inca farming expertise and ingenuity at the mysterious Moray, the ruins of a farming complex used to cultivate a variety of plants in the Andes. Reminiscent of crop circles, the three depressed circles that form decreasing terraces over one another were in fact created thanks to the dexterity of Inca hands and tools. Seeds farmed here likely made their way through to the empire itself, in order to improve crop yields in difficult Andean conditions. Read up about the processes involved before arriving to enhance your visit with greater understanding. If you're feeling activre, take advantage of a guided mountain bike tour to the site.

  • The agricultural laboratory of the incas. They have improved a lot in relation to 3 years ago that I visited. Little people and a visit that you can do in 40 min approx in case you don't have time. The perfection of the construction circular is out.

  • Actually being there gives you a quiet and tremendous peace, a tremendous place that allows you to understand the intelligence of the incas to think at all. Really a place spectacular!

  • I didn't think it was something not to be missed. The story is interesting, also very fast. The place is nice. But if I had known what it would be like maybe I hadn't gone.

  • Amazing ruins. Really show how smart the incas were. Beautiful mountainous view!
  • Incredible Inca site of circular terraces. Hire a guide or use a good guidebook to understand the significance.
  • Beautiful ride there and really nice Inca ruins. We went there on a motor bike, mainly off-road from cuzco
  • Once you see machu picchu, the rest is not much different. The road to get here is dusty and semi rough. Is it worth the money to see, i dont think so.
  • These are salt mines. They are fascinating and beautiful. Walk through them.
