The ruins at Pisac are once again perched on top of the mountain
that overlooks the village. The fit can climb up the track from
the village to the ruins or for a few Soles you could jump in a
taxi . Pisac is a lovely compact ruin to explore. There are dewlling
houses, water channels, bathings areas, temples, stonework, sun
gates and tracks to investigate. It's a great place to sit and watch
- not only other tourists, but the village of Pisac with its bustling
market below as well as the surrounding landscape, complete with
some fantastic examples of terracing. When you look around at the
countryside, you realise why the Incas built in such obscure places,
as you can literally see for miles and miles. Pisac is not a place
to be rushed. Take the time to walk along the track behind the ruins
and enjoy the peaceful countryside.
Most people visit Pisac to see the
market on Sunday, but there are smaller markets on both Tuesday
and Thursday. However Pisac is a pretty village and has plenty of
small handicraft shops and is worth a visit on any day of the week.
