The Sacred Valley, Vilcamayo to the Incas, traces its winding, astonishingly beautiful course to the north-west of Cusco.

Continue by driving to Moray – is a very extraordinary Inka’s site consisting of many huge terraces formed by circular depressions. Then we take the car to Maras, this small town on the colonial time, it was very important for the agriculture.
