We will have lunch in Urubamba, a short drive from Pisac and then continue on to Ollantaytambo.

The city of Ollantaytambo is best known for its ruins, and for the spot where the Inca emperor Manco Inca was able to defeat the Spanish in a set-piece battle. The finely cut rocks and plantation terraces were very large obstacles for the Conquistadors to surpass. The fortress was also used by Manco to conduct successful attacks on Francisco Pizarro and other Conquistadors who were based in Lima.

During the Inca Empire, Ollantaytambo was the royal estate of Emperor Pachacuti who conquered the region, built the town and a ceremonial centre.

On our return to Cusco we will visit Chinchero. Chinchero is a small Andean Indian village located high up on the windswept plains of Anta at 3762m about 30km from Cusco and in Incan mythology is believed to be the mythical birthplace of the rainbow.

We will visit their famous adobe colonial church, dating from the early seventeenth century and stroll around the main plaza where the locals display and offer their handmade products.

Finally after this unforgettable experience we will return to Cusco for dinner and traditional cabaret in one of the tourist restaurants.
