Pisac, Peru is an interesting little village situated in a beautiful region known as the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Pisac has a colorful market on Sundays that is worth a visit. But this beautiful area is worth a visit any day of the week or year to see the beautiful Incan ruins that spread across more than a mile of the mountain ridgetops that look out over the lush green valley and the village of Pisac below. Peru is a beautiful country to visit for anyone that loves hiking or photography.

Even an overworked DUI attorney San Francisco can find some peace hiking these beautiful mountains. Expert hiking enthusiasts will find the climb up to the Incan ruins in Pisac a challenging hike.
