We´ll leave Cusco and travel to the important agricultural center of Moray. There we can observe the great skill that the Incas exibiited through their farming techniques and by how they adapted plants to different climatic zones. You will see great circular terraces where the temperature changed depending on the altitude. It is thought by historians that the Incas studied climatic conditions and soil properties here. They learned how to grow and adapt different kinds of food crops that originally grew in different regions of their empire. As you descend the terraces, the temperature increases. The Incas had extraordinary knowledge of climates and microclimates.
Next we will continue on to the salt mines of Salineras, This is an impressive site that consists of over 5000 small wells where salt is collected. Some of these wells are very old. The Incas mined salt at this site, and this practice continued throughout the reign of the Spanish viceroys. The local people let the salt water flow into the depressions which they have dug out. Then the sun evaporates the water, leaving behind a crust of salt which is then collected and sold on the local market.
After visiting the salt mines we will continue on to the town of Urubamba to eat lunch. After that we will go to Ollantaytambo Archeological Center. At this magestic site you will see the Temple of the Sun of the Incas and the great system of the agricultural terraces.
