Puca Pucara: It was a control site for areas and also had different administrative spaces.

Maras town, where the houses still maintain their colonial facades. Moray Archaeological Complex, composed of several circular terraces that served as an agricultural laboratory during the Inca era. Salineras de Maras, consisting of hundreds of small saltwater pools where local community members still produce salt.

On this day, we will pick you up from the hotel at 8:30 am. Our first stop will be the Moray complex, located 7 kilometers from Maras in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, 38 kilometers northwest of Cusco. During the journey, you will see traditional communities surrounded by beautiful landscapes. We will visit the Moray complex, which was a center of agricultural research where cultivation experiments at different altitudes were carried out. Then, we will visit the Salineras de Maras, which have more than 3,000 salt pools of various sizes and dimensions, owned by local families. During the dry season, they take advantage of the salt produced, treat it with iodine, and sell it in the market.
