Visit the ancient Maras´salt mines of the Incas, where you will appreciate the process of extraction of the natural Salt. And Moray, a mysterious place that the Incas constructed to improve its agriculture.
Both touristic attractions, Maras and Moray are located at the beautiful Sacred Valley. This valley was very important at the Inca times, because of its wonderful weather for its diverse agriculture.
