Travel Facts

No one is exactly sure what was happening at Moray during Inca times. The three agricultural coliseums have irrigation canals and several terraces for farm experimentation. Each level is thought to have a different microclimate and may have been used to acclimate various crops.

Maras is a striking salt extraction complex. You can access it via a bridle path. The locals still remove salt from the pans as they have for thousands of years. Families pass the pans down from generation to generation as they continue this labor-intensive operation.
