The ruins are very interesting, the streets are great to walk, the fruit and vegetable mercado is a great place to eat and the main square has the best shopping in the valley.

The Pisac market is the best market for variety, price and number of stands. We all bought "alpaca" sweaters for sleeping in during our trek and were happy we had. I thought we might seem larger markets in Cuzco or Lima, but we would have been better to make all our purchases in Pisac. The town has lots of stands... More

Very interesting story in why these were developed and used. The agricultural expertise of the inca nation is a marvel

It's a smaller site and only ten minutes walking up the site. The views are incredible. I loved the tombs in the neighbouring mountain. Such a cool area and a great way to start seeing the Sacred Valley as you start understanding why places are where they are.

The views from the top are spectacular! The way water was supplied to this ancient site is amazing. The system still works to this day!

The Pisac Inca Ruins are at the entrance to the Sacred Valley. I did not expect to see the terraced rows here but only in Machu Picchu. In fact, there are many throughout the Sacred Valley. This is an easy trip from Cusco by car and so is a convenient starting point. There is much to see and much to... More

Our first stop in the Sacred Valley. A popular site as a lot of tourists. The catacombs give this attraction an added edge.

This is a great Inca site and an excellent hike. Take a minibus from Cusco to Pisac for about $2. The ride is less than an hour. In town hire a taxi to take you to the summit of the site. You can hike it, but for $6 take the cab. You may be told that the Templo del Sol... More

Highlight of my trip. What an amazing sight to behold. Loved the climb to the top even through the altitude made it a little tough. Would not have missed it for anything!

If you're planning a trip to Machupicchu you must also make time for a stop at Pisac. The scope of the terrace construction is amazing. The mountains are breath taking. Most folks are drawn there for the "market" come on. But, honestly, go for the Inca construction. It's not to be missed. It's an easy drive from Cusco for a... More
