Ollantaytambo

(4.2/5 based on 4,600+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, museums, sightseeing
Retaining much of its centuries-old architecture, Ollantaytambo represents one of the world's finest examples of Incan city planning. A tour of Ollantaytambo provides a look at atmospheric cobblestone streets and a still-functioning network of irrigation canals built by the Incas to provide fresh water for their growing settlement. The surrounding hills yield more Inca sites, which include temples, agricultural terraces, storehouses, quarries, and defensive structures. A growing number of day-trippers from Cusco has brought increasing traffic and pollution, but a holiday in Ollantaytambo remains one of the best ways to travel back in time and experience a slice of Inca history. Our Peru trip itinerary maker allows you to plan your trip to Ollantaytambo and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
