Maras: The picturesque town of Maras is a multicolored, whimsical example of nature. It is also home to the salt mines, Salineras, one of the most important minerals of the region which has been extracted since the times of the Incas. This was where the first production center of salt was in the southern part of the sierras.
This extremely nice population is located 46 Km from the city of Cusco, in the province of Urubamba, and has conserved a large part of its colonial architecture. You can appreciate extraordinary walls that were the product of extremely talented and fine labor in stone.
Moray: This is a formidable archaeological complex made up of a system of platforms and enormous terraces taking the form of a gigantic amphitheater. These terraces form a massive agricultural production center/laboratory in which the ancient Peruvians experimented with new farming techniques. They made incredible advances in agricultural technology, which was he basis of their economic development. We then return to Cusco.
