The church and tower are from colonial times, built on the base of Inca temples. The artisans offer locally made textiles, using ancestral techniques. After our visit we continue by bus to Moray which is a circular system of terraces built, taking advantage of the sinkholes in the area. They are terraces with microclimates, with experimental purposes, such as domestication, acclimatization, hybridization and in general the experimentation with plants. Then we will visit the salt mines, they were exploited since pre-Inca times there are more than 3000 ponds, shallow, owned by nearly 380 families, this salt water comes from natural springs that filter from the same hill called Qoripukiu (source of gold) then we will go to enjoy in Urubamba a delicious tourist buffet prepared with the products of the sacred valley, after enjoying lunch we will continue in the bus 30 minutes to reach the archaeological center of Ollantaytambo.

After the visit we will take our bus and arrive at the archaeological center Pisaq, is a name that comes from the Quechua word P'isaca (partridge). Its lands were used by means of intelligent systems of terraces with their respective irrigation channels, which allowed the almost exclusive cultivation of the best corn in the world parcay sara or giant white corn. Religious, urban, social and economic zones can be distinguished. Generally, the Incas built in high and safe areas that were not very vulnerable, as well as on land that was not suitable for agriculture. Colonial Pisaq originally, it was only a typical market dedicated to the purchase and sale of varied products, for the inhabitants of the place, at the moment it has been incorporated the sale of crafts, thanks to the visit of the tourists who are now daily.
