Sacred Valley

Most visitors to the Sacred Valley come here for the various Inca sites around. There are however also many pictoresque little villages. Pisac, around 33 kilometers from Cusco, is one of them. Besides visiting the Inca fortress of Intihuatana, the Sunday Market here is worth a visit for locals and tourists alike. It's quite colourful and a great way to interact with the locals, buy some souvenirs and get to drink some chicha. This famous South American drink can be alcoholic or non-alcoholic and the taste greatly varies depending on the fruits and vegetables used. In Cusco, chicha is mostly made out of corn. The best thing is to get some home-made chicha. The places where they offer this, are recognized by a pole with a plastic bag hanging outside the house.
