THE INCAS’ SACRED VALLEY
Tourist Information Cusco. As a contribution to make an adequate tourism in Cusco, we offer varied information on the main attractions in Cusco and especially in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
This large archaeological complex is located in the district of P’isaq, province of Calca, 33 km. to the east of the city of Cusco.
There is a strange coincidence between the distances that connect the cities of P’isaq, Cusco and Pikillacta. The distance between Cusco and P’isaq is 30 km, it is the same distance if you measure from P’isaq to Pikillacta and from Cusco to Pikillacta are also 30 km. By joining these three cities with a straight line, a perfect equilateral triangle is achieved, which creates multiple speculations around the incredible architectural genius that the Incas had.
The beauty of its walls, built with large stone blocks polished with extraordinary symmetry and unparalleled handling of the stone leave the visitor perplexed.
At first the amazement is inevitable, then a feeling of deep respect arises for the creators of those centenary buildings, mute witnesses of the greatness of an empire.
“On the banks of Willkamayu, the sacred god river that runs through channels of carved stone dominating its fury, begin the fringes of light and shadow of the famous platforms of P’isaq, the great city of the partridges. built on a crest of blue rock, almost over the air to envision the most beautiful of the valleys of Cusco, “says Peruvian journalist Alfonsina Barrionuevo, from this ancient Inca city.
Pisaq is formed by a set of enclosures that are possibly homes, aqueducts, roads, bridges, a cemetery, walls and large areas of huge terraces.
