Day 4 / Tue 19 - SACRED VALLEY
Your first visit is the town of Pisac, where the Incas built an observatory to study astronomy as well as an impressive network of cultivated terrace. After this, you will have the opportunity to bargain with vendors at the local handicraft market in Pisac. Lunch will take place at a great restaurant accompanied by a Paso Horse Demonstration.
Peruvian Paso Horses, with their elegance and noble spirit, symbolize a centuries-old tradition of cultural fusion and folklore that defines and enriches Peru.
In this presentation, Paso horses from our stables demonstrate their flowing gait and graceful motion to the rhythm of 'la marinera,' the national dance of Peru. Lunch is enjoyed in the Wayra Gardens among the native plants, served in a modern environment.
We are enveloped by the aroma of freshly baked bread coming out of the wood-burning ovens, tasty empanadas with different fillings and an amazing assortment of native potatoes from remote communities that have preserved them along with their stories.
After lunch, continue to the Inca fortress of Ollantaytambo. The site was built just as the Spaniards arrived to these territories and evidence of how it was built is still visible. After seeing the magnificent past of the spot stroll through the quaint streets of the present town before returning to your hotel.
