28 May 2016 Sacred Valley (Ollantatambo & Pisac)
The Sacred Valley is beautiful! We spent the night in Intitambo Hotel, right in the middle of the city center of Ollantatambo – a beautiful city with cobblestone streets and beautiful markets.
We woke up in the morning to explore the ruins that sit above the town, and walk with beautiful cobblestone streets around us. The Sacred Valley is called the sacred valley because of all the ruins that can be found there. We also visited Urubamba and Pisac during our day tour.
During lunch time we stopped for a cooking lesson and learned how to make ceramics from a local artisan, quite the treat! We took notes on how to make Peruvian tortillas and soup, and even had the opportunity to purchase some ceramics! Afterwards we traveled on to Pisac where we had free time to explore the beautiful textile markets.
I think we will all be coming home with some beautiful blankets…
