Travel Facts

Alternative Ollantaytambo Tour Facts

Ollantaytambo, nicknamed Ollanta by locals, looks and feels like a town that only Disney could have dreamed up, but it is accurate.

There are cobblestone streets, plenty of trees, long-forgotten ancient sites, charming boutique hotels, and stylish little cafés and restaurants. Pachacutec built the fortress and much of the city, called Llacta initially, in the 15th century.

A significant train stop site, along with Pisac and Urubamba, has become one of the leading tourist bases in the Sacred Valley. If entering Ollantaytambo from Pisac, notice the inclination of the wall on the stone road just before the town.

It was an Incan practice to build walls leaning toward the interior of buildings, but this one leans toward the street. Researchers have determined that the road must have been constructed inside several buildings.

Sightseeing Ollantaytambo Town & Ruins

The Plaza Mayor is small and less pleasant than most other Andean plazas. It seems to have a lot of tourist traffic, pedestrians, and vehicles and is not entirely enclosed. The few cobblestone streets north of the Plaza are much more enjoyable.

Most narrow streets were decorated with fine adobe brick and stone walls on both sides; many were part of Canchas – completely walled city blocks (except for one entrance).

The Canchas in Ollantaytambo is an excellent example of Incan town planning. The stone city blocks are still intact. Perhaps that is why the pueblo is the only continuously inhabited Inca village. A small produce market is typical of Andean villages on one side of the main square.

It will give you a good idea of the crops grown in the region. You can also buy local dishes here, such as Anticuchos or corn on the cob. Just make sure everything does cook. It is generally OK as long as you have a strong stomach. Below the entrance to the ruins is a craft market that sells various goods.

If you are looking for one, I’ve noticed that there tends to be a greater variety of stone carvings and jewelry. They also sell carved and decorated walking sticks, which aren’t a bad idea if you climb the ruins here and later head on to Machu Picchu. It is a bit livelier on Sundays, and locals in traditional dress come from miles around. But this is still far smaller than the Pisac market.
