The Sacred Valley
Nestled deep in the Andes of Peru, the spectacular Sacred Valley was originally the heart of the Incan Empire. This magical valley is long and narrow, stretching from Urcos and narrowing in Ollantaytambo before coming to a halt at Machu Picchu. The picturesque towns, full of history and charm, are scattered throughout the Sacred Valley. From Pisac, which boasts the best Sunday market in the area, to Urubamba, Maras, and Chinchero, there is something to interest everyone.
What do do
The Sacred Valley is a wonderful place to soak up the area's culture in a beautiful setting. But it's also an excellent place for outdoor activities and adventure and for visiting many interesting sites. Besides the Spanish lessons, there are many things to see in Sacred Valley, like famous Inca sites and picturesque villages with traditional markets. But there are lots of opportunities to get active. You can go trekking, or enjoy river rafting, mountain biking or horse riding, or explore the salt pools in Maras.
The ruins of the fortress at Pisac are among the most interesting found in all of Peru. At the same time, the Pisac Market in the small town is a beautiful and cultural place to explore. Another appreciated, unique small town is Ollantaytambo, built on original Inca walls. Above, you see the temple or fortress constructed when the Spaniards arrived. Moray, just outside the town of Moras, is a fabulous but lesser visited Inca Site. Another beautiful place is the salinas in Moray, salt mines that have been in use since the time of the Incas.
The well-preserved ruins of Machu Picchu, surrounded by towering green mountains overlooking the Urubamba River Valley, are gorgeous. Even after seeing the classic photos of Machu Picchu, words can still capture the essence of this awe-inspiring place. The 'Lost City of the Incas is one of the world's archaeological jewels and one of South America's major travel destinations. When you learn more about its discovery and the unsolved mystery surrounding its creation, it is no wonder why so many people visit this fascinating site.
The Inca people were terrific builders and architects. Their irrigation systems, temples, and fortifications can still be seen throughout Peru. They also had an efficient road system: couriers carried messages in the form of knotted cords all over the empire. The coca leaf played a considerable role in the Inca culture. The Incas believed it was possible to tell the future by reading coca leaves. Another well-known tribute that the Incas practiced was the homage given to Mother Earth.
The Sacred Valley is about a 90-minute bus ride from Cusco, the capital of the Inca Empire Cusco. The climate is warmer than in Cusco due to the lower altitude (2800 meters). It is a lovely spot to study Spanish and enjoy the valley's relaxing and tranquil atmosphere. This is the perfect place for a total Spanish immersion and to experience the stunning beauty of this impressive valley.
Enjoyable extracurricular activities such as a traditional Andean ceremony with an Inca shaman and lectures about Inca culture, Cooking classes, and day or afternoon trips to impressive ruins and tourist attractions of the Sacred Valley. There are also excellent options for hiking in the Sacred Valley and other adventure tours, and for volunteer work.
