Maras Moray

Archaeological complex of Maras Moray

In most cases, tourists who visit our country place a Machu Picchu, in Cusco, as their main destination. But Cusco is not only Machu Picchu, as you will know those who have taken a walk there. On this occasion we talked about the archaeological site of Maras Moray.

The archaeological remains of Maras Moray are 7km away. from the city of Maras, located in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. This place is a legacy of the Incas and to this day it is not known for sure what was its main use within the Tahuantinsuyo.
It is a series of agricultural terraces from the Inca period in the shape of concentric circles built with stone walls (like everything in the Inca Empire), with no more visible archaeological remains.

The terraces of Moray had a different purpose. Scholars say that the site was part of an agricultural research center. This makes a lot of sense, since in this part and in each of the platforms small microclimates are located that were not only useful for the calculation of the surroundings, but of all the Tahuantinsuyo.

Whether it is an enigma or lack of studies about it, the archaeological site of Moray has a natural beauty that contrasts with its immeasurable historical legacy. Key piece in Peruvian history and a necessary meeting point for any lover of the trip. So do not wait any longer and separate a passage to Cusco and the archaeological site of Moray.
