Since colonial times, visitors have discovered this rich land dotted with picturesque Andean markets, impressive churches and remarkable Inca ruins. At lower altitude than Cusco, the climate is considerably milder here making it the chosen area by the Incas, and later Spanish Conquistadors, as a resting place where they established their estates and country homes. Today the Sacred Valley draws visitors to admire the array of Inca ruins found here, colourful markets and rural communities with their traditional ways of life.
