  • In the Valley at the bottom of the town and the ruins of the Patacancha buildings of inkaskich. At the top of the wonderful terraces, the ruins of the houses and the temple Ollaytantambo. It has never been completed, what evidence can be seen with the naked eye. On a hillside opposite the mountain are also the remains of the terraces inkaskich. The Valley is a wonderful and unforgettable views and town also very charming. Recommend.
