Our first point of visit will be the picturesque town of Maras, in which place the houses still retain their colonial facades and have a beautiful Church. Then we will go to the Moray Archaeological Complex, which has a circular terraces or terraces system, which served as an Inca agricultural laboratory, to experience its new crops.
Finally we will visit the Salineras ‘natural salt wells’ which are platforms formed by hundreds of white wells that can be seen from a distance as if it were snow. In colonial times it became the first salt producing center in the southern highlands. They were used for thousands of years and even long before the Inca Empire.
