  • The last Inca city to be invaded and conquered by the Spaniards due to its location and for having been strengthened by its inhabitants. It has a fantastic story, if you can make the tour, because it makes the tour much more special. The view of the city is beautiful. We city feet have a fair where it is possible to buy souvenirs and typical articles from Peru. This tour can be made in package with agencies, the entrance is included in the tourist billet or can be made during a stop in the city of Ollantaytambo which is the boarding point on the train to Aguas Calientes.
