Sacred Valley

A Paradise To Be Discovered

 

Intro

Just an hour drive from Cusco, the Sacred Valley of the Incas (Urubamba Valley) is home to picturesque communities, impressive terraces, and several important archaeological sites. In Inca times, the valley was the breadbasket of the Empire and is still important for agriculture, as farmers plant the same fields (with the same crops they did in Inca Times.) Its mild weather and particular geography make it the ideal place for outdoor activities.
