When in the archeologically significant town, be sure to stop by and cross Inca Bridge. The original Incan-made bridge still stands as a foundation for the modern bridge. Walking distance from center of the city, the bridge offers yet another Incan relic among the many other ruins and artifacts in this region. However, don’t confuse this bridge with the more famous wooden Inca bridge, which is located on a sheer cliff in Machu Picchu. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Ollantaytambo holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Inca Bridge and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
