Pisac is a small town at the opposite end of the Sacred Valley from Machu Picchu. The town sits just off the Vilcanota River and is crowned with a pretty spectacular set of ruins.

The town was the first place we visited after Lima, opting to acclimatise in Pisac at 2,972m rather than suffer at the lofty heights of 3,399m in Cusco. It was a good introduction to a more authentic Peru, complete with maze-like village streets, a day of the dead celebration and a staggering number of stray dogs.
