Cusco may have been the capital of the Inca Empire and called the navel of their world, but the Sacred Valley was the heart. Only about 15kms/9.3 miles north of Cusco as the condor flies, the Sacred Valley brings you the most important Inca sites besides Machu Picchu. The valley has long been the home of attractive colonial towns, isolated weaving villages, handicraft markets and lofty 10th and 11th century Inca Citadels of Pisac, Ollantaytambo and Urubamba. You will also have the opportunity to visit the Pre-Inca Maras Salineras and Moray terraces, which were made by building containment walls filled with fertile earth. These terraces were watered through a complex irrigation system and an impressively constructed rainwater storage system. Your tour culminates with the amazing Citadel of the fabled Lost City of the Incas, Machu Picchu. The Inca City of the Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu is a masterpiece of art, urbanism, architecture and engineering of the Inca Civilization. The harmony of the architecture with the mountain, at the foot of the Huayna Picchu, is the exceptional result of integration with its environment, the result of a gigantic effort to blend advanced architecture with nature.
