Sacred Valley of the Incas

The Sacred Valley was the agricultural food bowl of the Inca, a fertile plain perfect for growing the Inca staples, maize and potatoes.

At the heart of the valley is the ancient city of Cusco, surrounded by remote Quechua villages and the crumbling remains of Inca citadels.

With its Quechua village festivals and markets, colonial churches, Inca ruins, river rafting, horseback riding and trekking, there are plenty of reasons to head out into the Sacred Valley of the Incas for the day or longer.

Practical Info

The Sacred Valley of the Incas is also called Urabamba Valley, watered by the Rio Urabamba. Cusco is the main town in the valley, and Machu Picchu is its most famous Inca site. Other towns in the region include Ollyantaytambo, Aguas Calientes and Pisac.
