Písac is a village located on the Urubamba River in the Sacred Valley. It is a popular place to stop on the way to Ollantaytambo and is famous for its markets which are held each Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday.

There is plenty of Peruvian craft for sale but the local market is fascinating and some lovely fresh fruit can be bought for a few Sol. It is in this part of the market where you find the local women in their traditional and very colourful dress.

There are several Inca sites close by and from the township you can see traditionally terraced hillsides.
