Arrive at Moray and explore the surprising archaeological history this unique Inca site. Check out the site’s three amphitheater-style bowls, carved deep into ground. Many experts speculate that the “bowls” were used to test the success of different farm crops under varying growing conditions.
After visiting Moray, head to Maras, a collection of more than 3,000 salt collection pools that dates back to pre-Incan days. Maras has long played an important role in salt collection for area residents, a tradition that persists to this day. Following your Maras visit, you’ll head back to the Cusco city center, where you can make your own way back to your accommodations.
