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. Make Pisac a part of your Pisac vacation plans using our Pisac day trip planning website .

  • The site is slightly different from the other Incan sites, but they all have the same theme (unsurprisingly). Definitely worth a visit.  more »
  • One of the most interesting archaeological sites in the Sacred Valley. Beautiful views of the valley and the mountains. Well preserved the terraces that are still used for cultivation as well as centuries ago. The visit commits heart and lungs to the remarkable height to which it is placed, but it is worth a little effort to admire buildings, staircases, fountains and irrigation canals. Every now and then you see some woman in an Andean costume who willingly lets herself be photographed.
