Overview


Highlights
Explore stunning Inca sites within the Sacred Valley at leisure.
Step back in time through the cobblestone streets, ruins and quaint shops of Ollantaytambo.
The inhabitants of Ollantaytambo still maintain traditions inherited from their Inca ancestors.
The word Ollantaytambo derives from the Quechua word ‘Ulla-nta-wi’ which means “place to see down”
The Ollantaytambo archaeological complex was a religious, military and agricultural center.


Accompanied by your guide, today you will venture to climb the 150 steps that separate the summit from the low part of the Ollantaytambo fortress, in which the Temple of the Sun (formed by six huge monoliths of pink granite, with a weight of more than 50 tons) and the Terrace of the Ten Niches stand out. The half day excursion ends with a short visit to the Ollantaytambo town, a typical example of the urban planning of the Incas, whose residents still live in accordance with their old traditions.
