Sacred Valley 01 day includes the places of Písac, Ollantaytambo and Chinchero, parallel to the Vilcanota or Wilcamayu river, it is fed by numerous rivers, which descend through adjacent valleys and gorges.
Chinchero: The most typical population of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, is a distinctly Inca city that the conquistadores wanted to “civilize” to implant their culture, but never fully achieved it. Its inhabitants inhabit almost intact Inca buildings, in the same place where their distant ancestors lived and formed the largest and most prosperous civilization in America.
In the Archeological Site of Chinchero, its platforms are initially called, which allows us to understand that it was a center of agricultural production in the Inca period, a warehouse was also built and the whole complex was equipped with a very efficient irrigation system.
The story goes that with the arrival of the Spaniards, Chinchero was burned down in 1536 by Manco Inca, in his flight to Vilcabamba, with the aim of leaving nothing to the Spaniards.
On the Palace of Tupac Yupanqui the Spaniards raised the Church of Our Lady of Montserrat in 1607, with the purpose of representing their submission in a symbolic way.
Its main altar carved in gold leaf and baroque style is dedicated to the Virgin of the Nativity. Its walls are decorated with works by Diego Quispe Tito, the highest representative of the Cuzco school. There are also works by Francisco Chihuantito.
Pisaq: The National Archaeological Park of Pisac is constituted by groups of archaeological remains among which stand platforms, aqueducts, roads associated with walls and portals, channeled water channels, cemeteries, bridges, etc. The area covered by this group is 4 square kilometers in area.
On this area the ruins are located occupying the hills, they appear forming groups of complicated disposition, while in others isolated constructions of the other groups are noticed.
Ollantaytambo:In Ollantaytambo, each worked stone is an independent work of art in relation to the others, with different sides, angles and volumes. The ancient Peruvians, oblivious to our ease and pragmatism, had another concept of time and art.
Ollantaytambo is also known, for an Inca plot drama entitled “Ollantay”, whose protagonist was General Ollanta; In this literary work the actions take place in this place.
