Marvel at Inca farming expertise and ingenuity at the mysterious Moray, the ruins of a farming complex used to cultivate a variety of plants in the Andes. Reminiscent of crop circles, the three depressed circles that form decreasing terraces over one another were in fact created thanks to the dexterity of Inca hands and tools. Seeds farmed here likely made their way through to the empire itself, in order to improve crop yields in difficult Andean conditions. Read up about the processes involved before arriving to enhance your visit with greater understanding. If you're feeling activre, take advantage of a guided mountain bike tour to the site. Take a look at our Maras trip planning website to schedule your visit to Moray and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • They are circular terraces used by the Incas for their crops... The construction and irrigation systems of the time are impressive.

  • This place is cool especially if you have a tour guide give you the lowdown of the theory on why it was created. It's pretty far out and there are a few other places that have similar setups though none quite like this.
  • Interesting place ! worth the drive. You can walk down to the circles, they have bathrooms on site as well as vendors selling local stuff. Enjoyed our visit here !
