Lunch at the local hacienda restaurant and continue to Ollantaytambo the major Inca temple/fortress. Probably built by the great Inca ruler, Pachacuti in the 1460s, it was the site of Hernando Pizzaro’s defeat by Manco Inca in 1536.

The famous lost city of the Inca is one of the most magical and mysterious places on earth. Stand 2,430m above sea-level in the middle of a tropical mountain forest. In an extraordinarily beautiful setting, it was probably most amazing creation of the Inca Empire at its height its giant walls, terraces and rams seen as if they have been out naturally in the continuous rock escarpments.
