Moray and Salineras Maras Tour:
Maras and Moray salts mines tour is another of the Sacred Valley’s incredible UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
It offers a glimpse into the engineering ingenuity of the pre-Inca civilisations that inhabited this corner of the Andes, who built the salt mines to cultivate salt crystals from some underground river rich in brine some five centuries ago.
But the mines are not a historical relic: they are still used for salt production!
Today, visitors can visit the salt mines and buy all kinds of salt-related items in the shops in the community of Maras.
They have spectacular views of the site, which unfolds in a mosaic of white marble amidst a lush valley of steep hills. Of all the Inca sites surrounding Peru’s Sacred Valley, we’d say Moray is one of the most impressive.
In fact, it is sometimes called the Agricultural Laboratory of the Incas, because the site was used primarily by pre-Columbian settlers to advance their understanding of agriculture and seed cultivation.
Moray: centres on a deep amphitheatre-shaped structure that lies more than 3,500 metres high in the Andes, beyond the small community of Maras. It is built on a series of stepped terraces, each of which is believed to have had unique micro-climatic conditions that allowed the Incas to experiment with different plants and vegetables.
Machu Picchu Full Day Tour:
Machu Picchu is undoubtedly the most important tourist destination in South America. Every day about 3,100 people come to visit this ancient Inca citadel. The full day tour Machu Picchu is the best for those who do not have much time, you can visit in a full day tour the lost citadel of the Incas.
Machu Picchu is often described as mysterious, it is said to be the refuge of the Incas, when the conquest of Peru began. It was built as a royal estate for the first Inca emperor, Pachacuti Inca Emperor in the mid-15th century, on a mountaintop overlooking the Urubamba River, Cusco (present-day Peru). The site was about three days’ walk from the Inca capital of Cuzco, and at 2,400 metres above sea level, with a pleasant climate.
It was intended as a place where the Inca emperor and his family could hold banquets, celebrate religious ceremonies and administer the affairs of the empire, while establishing a land claim that would be owned by his lineage after his death.
The site was chosen and located for its relationship to the Andean landscape, including sightlines to other mountain peaks, called apus, which have long been considered ancestral deities throughout the Andes.
The site contains dwellings for elites, servants and maintenance staff, religious shrines, fountains and terraces, as well as carved rock outcrops, a characteristic element of Inca art.
