Tucked below snowy Andean peaks, deep in the Sacred Valley, you'll find the village of Ollantaytambo. While it hasn't garnered the fame of Machu Picchu, it is home to a towering Inca fortress and fascinating ruins that include the streets and the town itself. It holds incredible significance to the ancient Inca empire as their final sanctuary against the invading Spanish conquistadors. The ruins here are both military and religious in purpose and have been very well preserved. In fact, many of the inhabitants of the village have indigenous roots and still practice many of the old ways, making it a great place to get some authentic exposure to culture & souvenirs. Ollantaytambo is conveniently located on the Urubamba river along the train route from Cusco to Aguas Calientes.
