Description

The Sacred Valley of the Incas was a crucial stronghold in the days of the their mighty empire, and functioned as an agricultural, spiritual, and political center for them. Today, the Sacred Valley is home to many Inca and Pre-Inca sites. Join me as I help you expand your ideas of the Incas beyond Machu Picchu by taking you on a live-streamed, interactive virtual tour of the Inca site of Pisac. 

The ruins of Pisac are a testament to the Inca prowess of stone-masonry and architecture, and in their heydey these towns were used as guard points for the Sacred Valley borders to helped prevent attacks from enemies. On this Online Experience you will get to explore the fascinating farming terraces built by the Incas at this site, and learn how these and other aspects of their amazing city were built with just Bronze Age technology. Witness the ancient cemeteries in the area with over 10,000 tombs; hile many were raided by the Spanish during the occupation, a number of remaining holes allow the buried relics to be seen.

You will also see the ramparts and storehouses of the Inca fortress. Walking along these raised sites, you will get to know about their history and the ingenious ways in which Inca architecture ensured these areas remain free of flooding even to this day. From atop the ramparts you will also get to see a magnificent view of the Sacred Valley. As we make our way along the ruins of Pisac, I will also show you around and inside some Inca buildings, and teach you how to tell the sacred ones (the Wakas) apart.
