MARAS SALT MINES AND MORAY INCA AGRICULTURAL STATION
Pre-Inca Maras salt mines and Moray’s Inca agricultural station are two fascinating tourism wonders of Peru located very close from each other approximately 50 km northwest of Cuzco in the Urubamba valley
In contrast, the stunning Inca archaeological site of Moray is a large bowl-like depression. It is constructed on a series of concentric terraces that looks like an ancient Greek amphitheatre. The largest part of these terraces is at the centre – they are enormous in size, and descend to a depth of approximately 150 meter, leading to a circular bottom so well drained that it never completely floods, no matter how plentiful the rain. The concentric terraces are split by multiple staircases that extend upward like spokes of a wheel and enable people to walk from the top to the bottom of the bowl.
