Peru ~ sacred sites we will visit and more~
Mchu Picchu ~the ancient city of the inkas, deep in the Andes mountains of Peru. A once ( maybe twice!) in a lifetime special visit! World Heritage Site!
Pre- Inka salt works/ ponds ~Since pre-Inca times, salt farmers at the saltworks (salinas) near Maras have evaporated salty water from a subterranean stream in Peru, South America. A rough dirt road connects Maras (in the Urubamba/Vilcanota River Valley, Sacred Valley of the Incas)
Sacred inka ruins in Pisaq, Sacred Valley ~Temple of the Sun, baths, altars, water fountains, a ceremonial platform, and an inti watana, a volcanic outcrop carved into a "hitching post for the Sun" .
Pisaq Sunday Market with all kinds orf "artisanias" beautiful handmade things~everything from hats to pants and wallhangings... great place for souvenirs and supporting local people..
