Pisac in the Urubamba valley

The small village of Pisac is in the Urubamba Valley. Usually you pass Pisac on a guided tour in bus, or if you take a surveying tour in taxi - which is a good idéa.
Sunday morning is the best day to go there, perhaps on the way to Ollantaytambo etc.
This location has a market that is very big, if you like it or not is a matter of personal choice.
Notice the terrazes on the mountain opposite, there are the famous ruins of Pisac.

Did you say something about being ruined - going to the ruins I mean?.
-Well, we will do that next time, can´t afford it this time:-(

The city of Pisac is worth strolling around, there are many interresting shops.
High above the city on the montainside are the Pisac archeological site, the Pisac Ruins that I must visit next time ...
