4.6/5 based on 3,000+ reviews on the web
Perched atop a ridge, with plummeting cliffs on either side, Pisac and the landscape surrounding them transport visitors to another time. Built in the 15th century, the once-great citadel served a triple purpose, with evidence of religious, military, and agricultural structures. Local residents still use the brilliantly designed, tiered plots of land for farming purposes. Allow two hours to climb up to the ruined citadel, a few hours for exploration while you're there, and one hour to get back down to town. Bring water and snacks for the trek. Take a look at our Pisaq family vacation planner to schedule your visit to Pisac and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

Nothing to envy to Machu Pichu. Beautiful to walk slowly and sit on their terraces to take some mates and admire this wonder.
