Create an itinerary including Moray
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.

  • So fascinating to learn about the history and mystery of the area! A must see in the Sacred Valley - a drive to remember!

  • The complex is not very big if you compare to Pisaq, for example, but it is very nice and you can walk up the montain and see the fields. The entrance fee is included in the tourist ticket. I visited....  more

  • What an amazing spectacle! Combine this with the Salt Pools of Maras to really get a look into the ancient Inca world. Spend some time just walking around and imagine yourself in the world. The symmetry here is incredible!
  • Very interesting site for Incan agricultural experimentation. There are three holes most pix are of the reconstructed one. Again, a knowledgeable guide makes this more than just an interesting hole in the ground.
