Perched atop a ridge, with plummeting cliffs on either side, Pisac and the landscape surrounding them transport visitors to another time. Built in the 15th century, the once-great citadel served a triple purpose, with evidence of religious, military, and agricultural structures. Local residents still use the brilliantly designed, tiered plots of land for farming purposes.

Make Pisac a part of your Pisac vacation plans using our Pisac day trip planning website.
