Pisac Archeological Center:
This archeological center is located on the highest part of the mountain above Pisaq, and contains temples, urban areas, and agricultural terraces. The quality of these archeological remains is a testament to the importance of Pisaq in Incan times.
The market of Pisaq is a place full of color and tradition, where you’ll find high quality handicrafts produced by the residents of the area, known as “Piseños”.The market occupies the main square of Pisaq, where you will also find the town’s colonial church. The Pisaq market is known for its textiles, ceramics, silver work, and other one-of-a-kind souvenirs.
After visiting the market, we’ll continue to the restaurant in Urubamba where you’ll enjoy a delicious and relaxing buffet lunch.

You’ll be able to observe the large agricultural storage sites and military constructions such as walls and watchtowers. The visit to Ollantaytambo takes approximately an hour and 20 minutes.
