The archaeological site of Ollantaytambo - The last living Inc. of village in the Sacred Valley!
Situated high in the Sacred Valley, the historic town of Ollantaytambo is a former Inca administrative center and also the entryway to the Amazon corner of the Inca Empire. The quaint town lies about two hours’ drive from the ancient Inca capital of Cusco. A visit to Ollantaytambo will bring you back to the early 13th Century during the Inca civilization.
Surrounded by a winding river that runs through it, as well as beautiful mountains, the historic town is a living model of the Incas urban design, with its stone architecture, narrow pathways, and cobblestone streets.
Ollantaytambo also features archeological ruins and stone fortresses that are worth exploring. It was the site of the Inca’s ultimate military victory when they were invaded in 1536 by the Spaniards, and the ruins are some of the strongholds of the Incas. With a real character and a welcoming feel, Ollantaytambo is a place where the Inca history comes to life.
