Wonderful village with bustling markets even in the rain. We sampled from a local bakery, wandered the streets, and enjoyed the great variety of goods and souveniers on sale.
My husband Peter and I visited the Pisac ruins on our next to the last day in Peru’s Sacred Valley and were absolutely blown away by the ruins. Visitors to the ruins can opt to take a steep and fairly long hike up the mountain or you can do as we did, take a taxi to the top where one... More
If you are going to go to Pisac, go early in your trip the Cusco so you can appreciate the market. Otherwise as we thought, it was just another market with everyone selling the same stuff. We went on a Tuesday and the main square was filled, but nothing special. I would recommend going on a Sunday for sure. The... More
We visited the ruins twice, the first time with a group and when the crowds were there. The next time, we were earlier (before 10) and had more time to hike to the Intihuatana (hitching post of the Sun).

We spent about 2 hours hiking among the ruins, but really could have spent another hour here. There's ruins near the parking lot, then more ruins at the end of a trail that wraps around the mountain, goes thru a rock tunnel and hangs close to the cliff's edge. These are the ruins that you should walk to. Amazing example... More
Famous for it's market, but not much else. There were some old Inca foundations, but the goods in the market stalls were much the same as you see elsewhere. I'd skip this stop.
