Pisac and the outdoor Market

Pisac and the outdoor Market  |  Sacred Valley, Peru  |  Písac is a Peruvian village in the Sacred Valley on the Urubamba River. The village is well known for its market, which nowadays takes place every day, but most visited and crowded on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. A true Andean village market. Despite of its popularity the market retains much of its local charm, at least in the part where villagers from miles around gather to barter and sell their produce. Follow my Instagram Peru Photo Gallery for more tips, photos and videos.  Continue reading Pisac and the outdoor Market

Was sweet enough and tasted great. Follow my Instagram Peru Photo Gallery for more tips, photos and videos.  Continue reading Drinking CHICHA at the Markets of Ollantaytambo
